     I love meeting new people from all walks of life and I also love making new friends.  It is so interesting to learn about different cultures and traditions and to taste new foods--some I had never heard of.  That is one reason I enjoy traveling so much!
      When our children were younger I wanted to invite foreign exchange students to live with us, but because we travelled much between Illinois and Nebraska to visit family and for business, it didn't seem possible.  Now that we live in Illinois my dream of meeting people from all over the world is being realized.  As I was looking at our guest book the other day I was amazed at the number of places our guests have come from.  We have had the opportunity to host new (and old) friends from many different cities and states in the U.S., plus Australia, Hungary, Kenya, Belgium, the U.K, Norway, Uganda, and the Caribbean.  What a blessing to now have friends all over the world!  I guess I'm never satisfied though, because I am always eager to meet someone new.
     Several people have visited this blog which not only makes me curious to know who they are, but where they live and also how they discovered the blog.  If you are reading this, but don't know me personally, I would love to get to know you, too.  I feel almost as if we are friends already because you know much about me, but I want to know you, too.  I would love to hear from you, either from comments left on the blog, or through email.  I would find it so interesting to know what your life is like, how you found this blog, and what you enjoy reading on it.  (Of course, I'm always eager to hear from old friends, too.)     
      I guess I am just a naturally curious person, but you must be, also, to have found this blog.  That means we already have one thing in common that I know about.
      I'm looking forward to hearing from you.
