Zoe's Friendship Blog Hop!

Welcome to Zoe's Friendship Blog Hop. If you arrived here from Melissa you are on the right track. If you just happened to stumble on my blog and would like to start at the beginning please click Here.

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our live mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand, this is a true friend that cares. This layout is in honor of My BFF "Sharon"!

When I became ill about four years ago all of our friends walked away from us except for Sharon, she has always been there for me, it doesn't matter how rotten I feel or how miserable I get, I know I can count on her! I don't know if everyone else thought I was going to drop dead or what, but I really needed them and they were no where to be found. ( Don't get me wrong , I do have a wonderful supporting family, but I do need a friend once in awhile)

I found the poem on the Internet and I think it just sums up the way I feel about Sharon.

Sharon and I have so much in common, we both love Bingo, Vegas, good looking guys, shopping, reading and of course are Cricuts! I took this picture one night at Bingo when we were just joking around.
Sharon you are my BFF now and forever! Thanks for being there for me!

Now on to the fun stuff!

Who whats Blog Candy?

was a bit worried that I would not be able to give my wonderful followers a chance to win some blog candy for this hop, we have a Mail Strike going on here in Canada, but one of my Blogging Friends has stepped in and saved the day! Kimberly from My Craft Spot has kindly donated a $15.00 Gift Certificate for My Craft Spot! How cool is that?

What a lovely layout! I love bingo too! In California, there aren't many places that play it tho :( I am so sorry to hear that your "friends" walked away when you needed them the most-sounds to me that they are the ones that lost out-not you. Thank you for sharing! I am already a follower and fellow hopper :)
