On another note, many of you have read me saying that moving to a new state and making friends during this season of my life(i.e. empty nest and retired) has been a real challenge for me.
Last year I was discouraged and lonely because let's face it friends a gal needs a girlfrend; there are just some needs a hubby can't meet but this year I've been content~after all hubby and I are closer than we've ever been. Having said that I also realize it might be in part because I've made so many incredible friends blogging. Yesterday one of my very best, closest friends called just to check on me; this is a gal I've become so close to through blogging and life circumstances and I can't tell you how blessed I've been by her. There are others too that I haven't talked to but still hear from almost daily and I am blessed.
It reminded me of a verse in Proverbs: "There is a friend who sticks closer than a brother(or sister). Prov.18:24
So to Becky, Carol, Sue, Debbie, Lynn, Dineen, Karen and all my other blogging buds I thank the Lord for you today and thank you for your love and friendship. I pray His richest blessings on you and yours. Hugs to each of you!
