Gratitude Post # 12~My New Friends

My gratitude post for today are my new friends. For those of you that do not know about our move last year. We moved last January from a town where we had lived there for twenty-six years. A place where we raised our children. A town where I owned my flower shop. A town where we went to church. A town with so many good friends. My whole life was in that town and especially my church and my friends. A town where everybody knows your name.

I thought my life as I knew it was over. I did not know if I would make new friends in this new small community of 2800 folks. In addition to that, we live ten miles south of that town of 2800 in an even smaller community.

Sunday night I went to a Ladies tea hosted by a church. There were about 400 women there. I have been visiting this church. My friend invited me to go with her. I almost said no because I have been feeling sorry for myself. I am thankful I did go because I met another new friend. It is so nice to meet new people. So I now know about 15 people and I am spreading my wings.

I feel so blessed to work with good people. They are my new friends, too. You never know what you can do until you have to do it. Thanks to my new friends, I am planting my feet and blooming where I am planted. I still have a few more churches to check out. I am making progress though and I am so very, very grateful.

It might take some time to make new friends but it does happen and they are lucky to have such a wonderful lady as their friend :)

It is very hard to make such radical changes but you are very brave.

When you open your arms and heart to making new friends then it becomes easy to do. You are doing that I can tell.

Have a terrific day. Big hug. :)

Enjoyed your honest post.
Friends are important. I too am in a new season of my life. I am grateful the people God has brought my way.
He has a plan for our lives, and people are always a part of it.
Blessings to your Friday!
