Friendships & Prayers

(Me, Chris, Stacey & Dana) 

We all have times in our lives when changes come along that are subtle, not earth shaking or outwardly visible. But the ones that are whispered & you realize things have shifted, when you apparently weren't paying close enough attention. They are the ones that seem to mold & shape you with each passing day more than the big impacting ones. That's where I have found myself for awhile. And in this realization, I have stood still, not knowing in which direction to go. So, I prayed....I have been blessed with many friends, this coming from the very lonely child who felt my Granny was my only confidant. But yes, the Lord has blessed me with many relationships throughout the years, some have remained, while some were for seasons. And if all my "friends who live in the computer" lived near me I wouldn't know what to do with myself! But I know it would be a blast! I have some of the sweetest friends I have met through blogging & now facebooking. Some that I talk to every single day. And what a treasure they are. This post is taking nothing away from those precious friendships & those of my dearest friends who live far away. But I have been lonely for awhile. What I mean by that is, lonely for people in my life that I can see & do things with. I am the first to admit I am a isolator. It's just easier for me to stay in the confines of my home. But honestly due to the circumstances like having 1 car, has caused much of that. I remember a time when I was called a "social butterfly." The butterfly is still there, she just stays in her cocoon far too much. Haha! I know the Lord sends people in & out of our lives for reasons & some are easier to see go than others. I do value each of my friendships dearly, they have all added a new dimension to my life in some fashion. I'm not going to lie, there are a few friendships that I miss desperately & the way they once were. So, in my prayers for new friends I asked the Lord for some  friends that I could hang out with, do things with, laugh with, feel like myself with & little did I know, He was lining up just that. I am on a new adventure with some new friends. I don't know where it is going to take me, but the beginning has been pretty sweet so far.
