A Dream Came True

I guess you heard me many times say my dreams didn't come true. And I'm sure this also has a purpose. Maybe my dreams are inappropriate in God's eyes or it's just not the right time for them.
Anyway... Today was a dream coming true!

Kindred spirits
My dear friend and sister in Christ all the way from Virginia Beach, VA came to tour Europe with her husband and they had the wonderful idea to come to Budapest, Hungary just beacuse of me!!
This was the first time ever we met in person.
I think it was 2006 when I found her on the internet - better said her website on Anne of Green Gables. Anne rocks!! And so does Gilbert! ;)

I was kinda afraid... and I didn't really know what to expect. We have been penpals ever since... but I just couldn't imagine how it would be turn out to meet in person. I had other penpals who I met after years, and it was a disappointment... I imagined how they are like... according to the many letters... but when we met they were totally strangers. But not my Robbi!

It was a wonderful, wonderful day! I had the chance to observe her intonation and reactions... to see my hometown through her eyes, it was nice to hear her thoughts on various things and to pray together. This day basically confirmed that we are more alike than I've ever thought. We are kindred spirits indeed! :)

The physical distance is huge! But despite we are sisters and bosom friends (khm... thanks to facebook, snailmail and skype) - just like Anne and Diana.

Time flew fast and we got very very tired at the end of the day. But I tried to most out of our Budapest tour showing her the most possible.

A perfect end of a perfect day.
With her husband and in-laws.
