small blog world

I learned today through blogging that this is indeed a small world.
I recently left a comment on this lovely blog . . .


Just a Little Something For You

Someone from Pennsylvania {who doesn't have a blog but enjoys reading them} clicked on my comment thumbnail taking her to my blog.

From there she clicked on my side bar link that takes you to news of our trip to Cambodia where we recently spent a month welcoming our new grandson.


Well . . . Ruthie then emailed me to tell me that she and her husband had been in Cambodia as well to greet their new grandchild in January. Such a similar story.



So . . . I forwarded the email to my daughter in Phnom Penh to tell her the fun coincidence.

Here is her reply:
Mom,
That's so funny, Ryan & Bethany are friends of ours. They actually just came over for pizza last week. Small blog world. :)
Love A

Isn't that so strange? I had a similar experience that was just kind of crazy. I'm sure you and Ruthie will be fast friends, she just needs a blog now.

Wow! What an amazing story and more convincing than ever to me that it is truly a small world. Ruthie sent me a fun email too and she is so excited to meet you via blogland. Thanks for sharing. I enjoyed all of your slides on your visit.

I just LOVE this!! I'm reminded all of the time what a small world we live. It never ceases to delight me when I see God working through things like blog land to make it all the smaller.

Oh how fun! Glad you found each other.

I happened upon another blogger over the weekend who said she lived in Ohio, too! I left her a comment telling her what city I lived in...she's just 10 minutes away! Small world, indeed!
