I am so happy to introduce my guest to you today!!
You may have heard me talk about my friend, Richella, from Imparting Grace, on my blog before.
Richella is one of my dearest blog friends. I met her shortly after I started blogging, and we instantly connected. Her precious comments brought me great comfort and encouragement during my mom’s illness and death.
I was so blessed to finally meet Richella in person at Blissdom this past January. She roomed with my sister and I! It is such an amazing feeling when your online friends become your real life friends.
That is Richella in the beautiful teal blouse. Seeing this picture again brings a tear to my eye. I love my blog friends so much and miss them terribly!
Richella can be summed up in these words: Genuine, Compassionate, and Loving.
And she’s also a lot of fun!
She’s probably going to kill me, but I have to post these pictures of us in the Photo Booth at Blissdom.
She’s my buddy!
Richella’s blog is a treasure to read. If you do not follow her blog, you should. She will bless your heart!
Here are a few of my favorite posts of Richella.
Her New Guest Bedroom:
This next post blew my mind! She used a styrofoam cooler to make this beautiful ottoman. I’m totally serious!! A styrofoam cooler!
I love that her blog contains so many great things…home decor, crafts, English lessons (which I desperately need!), thoughts from her heart, and a whole bunch of spiritual wisdom.
Richella is also a mom of all boys. Three precious red-headed boys to be exact! And one of my very favorite posts of hers is a poem she wrote called, “Thoughts from a Blogging Mother.” It’s a must read if you are a mom and a blogger.
As a side note, I would like to ask all of you to please pray for Richella and her family in the coming week. Her husband, Jack, is having major heart surgery on Tuesday, April 12th, and I know she would covet your prayers. You can read about her husband is a post she just recently wrote, “Hope Matters”.
If you have never met Richella here in blogland, you are in for a treat!
She is beautiful. Her home is beautiful. But most importantly, her heart is beautiful.
So without further ado, here is Richella….
I’m so excited to be here at Traci’s today. I’ve known Traci now for nearly two years–and that’s a long time in blog years! One of my dreams came true when I got to meet Traci and her sister Cyndi at BlissDom in January. In fact, I got to room with them. Please don’t hate me!
Thanks for sharing such a beautiful and simple project with us, Richella! You are the best!
