Meeting Magnanimous Meriel

A true friend reaches for your hand and touches your heart. ~Author Unknown

I had the honour and privilege of meeting the lovely Meriel last night.

Meriel you are the best! You are one of those people who are (and I KNEW would be) just as lovely, lovable, warm, calm, genuine and big hearted in real life as on-line.

You are a total sweet-heart. (B also though both you and your MIM are just wonderful people.)

Meriel and I had never met. We connected via the blog network, and she knows my ex, and more specifically his brother, from the ancient past way back when...

Meriel is nothing but kind, caring, supportive, warm, amusing, charming and just damn NICE! All the time. I don't know how she manages it, but I do know she pays a lot of attention to her thoughts and attitudes and I think a lot can be learned from that. She is an inspiration and clearly a wonderful mother and partner and a sterling friend.

Thanks so much for the invite. I had a fabulous time and LOVED the comedy show! It was excellent and I have not laughed so long and hard for a long long time. It was just what the doctor ordered.

It really was a privilege and treat t meet you. Thank-you thank-you so much for your kindness and generosity in inviting me along.

“Laugh as much as you breathe and love as long as you live.”

Laughter is an instant vacation. ~Milton Berle

A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures in the doctor's book. ~Irish Proverb

“A friend is someone who understands your past, believes in your future, and accepts you just the way you are.”


  1. She is really a special person, and I've only been reading her blog for a very short while

  2. Phew Jane - not sure I'm all that. But its a great goal to try live up to.
