Knowing Blog Friends

What's the difference between "knowing about" someone and "knowing" someone...this is a concept I've spent considerable amount of time musing on, praying about, studying through....and I will blog someday....when life slows down a bit more....but Sunday was ANOTHER example of the difference between knowing about and being known.

Vicky and I have known about each other for a bit more than a year...maybe longer. We've read each other's blogs. We recognize each others' families. Saturday afternoon I got a FB message telling me she, Seiju, her father in law and sons would be in our area to catch the ferry from Hachinohe back to Hokkaido on Sunday and asking if we could meet.

We had a lovely lunch together.  And I wish we had a bit more time to get to KNOW each other...but we definitely have moved from "knowing about" to "knowing." ::grin::

We're jealous of how Vicky and Yoshi can move back and forth between Japanese and English....and my kids LOVE your accent, Vicky.

Note, I'm not sure how far and wide Vicky would like her blog shared or I'd link it. She provides a fascinating view of life in Japan.

Choosing Joy!
