Let's" X-amine" Why "You" Always Make Me Smile!

What happened last week!? I lost track of time and heaven forbid, I missed my Alphabe Thursday "X" post! So  here it is one week later and I am looking over the possibilities for the letter "Y"! Now comes the easy part! I am making  up my learning lesson from last week with the letter "X" and adding the letter "Y" to this post!

I know "X-amine" is not the actual correct term for the word I am  using but please forgive me! It is six o'clock in the morning and I am having my coffee while I write! I can be a little creative in the morning so here goes my post:

I decided to "X-amine" why "You" always make me smile! Over here there can be sadness, time for tears but there is also such an incredibly strong bond we form as if someone glues us together for life! We start to meet other people and share our lives, our thoughts, our creative spirits! Someday's there is sadness. On that note please pray for Jarad, the son of Linda. Someone stole his truck, a vehicle he had recently paid off! They were at a park having cupcakes to celebrate Tressa's birthday! She is the youngest child of Linda and Mr. Phil. They were gone from the parking area about 30 minutes and someone stole his truck! They have been praying, and if you know Linda you will understand. If you don't know her go visit! She is one amazing farm mama! Jarad had his bible in the door side pocket. They feel if someone is so lost perhaps the Lord will save them by letting them read that bible! The sadness is that Jarad left his wallet in the truck and now the thief knows where they live! He has young children and they have been really scared. Although this is a sad situation you have to know Linda is one of those upbeat people always sharing the Lord with everyone and detailing His answer to prayers at her blog! That makes me smile a lot!

I feel I am "X-tra" blessed knowing all of you! No matter how large or small, there is something each time I visit with you individually that makes my face burst into a smile!

Take Smiling Sally for instance! Self explanatory! She hosts Blue Monday and through her and this weekly event I meet the most "Xtraordinairy" people! I know, my creative spelling will probably fail this week but you have touched my heart!

Ms. Jenny  is our favorite Alphabe Thursday teacher! Each week she shares her stories with us and her creative talents with her hand painted signs. She is most talented and I love knowing her. She is one of those wonderful bog friends that I had the pleasure to meet last November in Phoenix. She and her sweet hubby Mr. Jenny drove to the Toka Sticks Golf Course to meet us when Nick and his team mates ran in the 2011 Nike Southwest XC Meet! It was fun and exciting to meet her and she is a real gem!

Suzanne and her aunt LV are two more fun folks I had the pleasure of meeting while they were visiting Colorado. I also met Suzanne's mom Patsy. They are three of the nicest ladies you want to know! Their charming ways make me smile when I think about our lunch date! I hope we can get together again! LV always has the right thing to say and Suzanne is one crafty quilter! Patsy is just simply one of the kindest gals I know!

I could go on and on but you would probably have to spend a week or two or three reading about each and everyone  of you that I adore knowing! Enjoy my google images of many different yellow flowers and go viist some classmates at AT!

A very sweet post! I enjoyed your Xamination of Y these others have made you smile :o) Prayers for Jared's truck to be returned and that there is a change of heart of the one who took it. When we had something lost, we have said, hopefully, whatever it is might bless someone...and if it had been taken, we pray that their heart may be softened and changed and that they do not repeat that action.

& I agree how wonderful it is to have met so many great "friends" through blogging! I look forward to the visits of those that can and look forward to the encouraging and sweet comments that are left at my blog :o)

Blessings & Aloha!
I am still visiting our daughter, son in law, and grand baby, but wanted to be sure to get some Alphabe-Thursday visits in :o)

What a wonderful post!
This is the reason blogging has been so much fun-sharing and interaction with others--people we may never even meet in person.
lovely photos!

Gosh, so sorry to read about his truck!

So surprised to see my name here!

You are just such a sweet and caring person, Anne.

Be sure to take time to care for YOU, too!
