A Blogger's Joy

I was having a bad day at work today when suddenly my phone beeped, I received an SMS. It came from a friend, she just said she misses me a lot, oh well it melts my heart..

Still at work, later tonight another SMS came. Only the mobile number appeared, meaning it wasn't registered in my phone's directory list. 

"Kjære Gracie!..", I paused for a while and think who's the sender? 

Can't think of any but mommy Joy.. I think it's her! 

"...klem fra mommy Joy"

And yeah, I knew it! The beloved and truly a joy and inspiration to many here in blogosphere had sent me an SMS, oh dear I thought I was going to faint! 

Good thing I only had few hours of work. Just as I came home and wear off my winter boots, gloves and thick jacket, I went directly to my office room and immediately dialed mommy Joy's mobile number! 

Ring.. ring.. ring.. (kinda nervous..)

I think she knew already that it was me because here in Norway after answering the phone, we say "Ja, hållo Ola Nordman?" Norwegians tell their names or most probably the complete name, but mommy Joy said only hello or did I just misheard? Hahaha! 

Anyway, I was so excited so I wasn't really paying attention to every details and moments. All I wanted to hear was mommy Joy's sweet young voice! 

I talked to her for 15 minutes but wow seems like an hour or two! Blogging has become more and more meaningful to me now, seems to me so easy now to reach out to those inspirational people behind blogs like mommy Joy. I could have stayed on the phone for hours but oh a sweet, lovely and not so young man was waiting for me at the dining table who even said "Hei" to her. 
Got this card last 12.12.12, simple yet the most beautiful and creative card
I have ever received! Thanks a lot my mom in blogosphere, you
are every blogger's inspiration and joy. Hugs!

As my way of appreciating her kindness, I bought and send her a bouquet of flowers, see here.
