Everything Happens For A Reason

It's another impromptu post!  To preface, I must tell you that I'm on a blogging high right now!  On Monday, I Skyped with my Blog BFF/Blog Soulmate, Emily.  (I look drab in the picture in her post, but I have one that I'm posting tomorrow!)  It was so much fun, and I am even more in love with her.  I can't wait until she and her husband are back in the states, and Mr. TBS and I can meet them IRL!  I really think it's going to be amazing!  

Something happened today, and I must share it right now.  Gather 'round and pull up a chair.  I have a little Twitter tale to tell you!  I have to keep it short, because I'm on a break at work, so here it is -- short and sweet!

* * * * * * * * * *

The pipes broke in Meg's school district.
Everyone was dismissed for the day, including teachers!

Meg tweets about it, because she's so happy.

I see the tweet and wish that the pipes at my office would break.

Meg replies with:
(Note: I work in The Woodlands, TX.)

We get excited and plan to meet after her three-hour drive to the Houston area.

We meet!  We chat!  
Our first priority is to take a picture for Jessica, Meg's Blog BFF and my Blog Little Sister, using this really nifty prop I made.  ;-)

We take a lot of pictures (because we're bloggers). 
(Evidence I didn't wear a suit to work today.  Oops!)

We immediately tweet out numerous pictures.



Little did we know, Jessica was having a terrible day, but our picture cheered her up!

And now Jessica is seriously planning a trip to Texas for June.  (Eeeek!)


Isn't it funny how the pipes breaking in a small town outside of Dallas led to all of that?  What made Meg and I meet up today instead of tomorrow or this weekend?  Who knew Jessica would need some comforting today?   

Moral of the Story: Everything happens for a reason!

I think it's safe to say that the three of us believe that much more in the power of blogging!  
Meg & Jessica, I love you both!

This is the most charming and fantastic story! Clearly I need to get on Twitter, since it brings your blog-friends to you. I just love that y'all cheered Jessica up, too- she's always so positive and optimistic on her blog, I'm glad y'all were able to lift her spirits with your gorgeous smiles! I just love the small world we live in- now, to convince you to plan your own summer blate holiday... :)

I'm tempted to print this post and hang it on my wall....or maybe put it in my wallet and carry it with me everywhere I go. NOT JOKING.

Seriously you two are wonderful.
Too wonderful for words actually.

And I love you both to pieces

I CAN'T WAIT UNTIL JUNE!

Aweee that is so sweet! and amazing how that all worked out the way it did! It's amazing when things really do happen for a reason, and you look back and are glad things ended up going that way, whether it was expected or unexpected. Mostly unexpected though, because really some of the greatest things happen when you least plan them!
