Hard to believe, but I'm doing it! Going off on a trip without husband, without kids... really just for me. Yeah, sure, I'll see people, and some of those support us, but no speaking, no presentations, no kids to watch... just meeting old friends.
I am still surprised I am doing it.
Today... I'm thankful for friends. Sat with one for an hour this morning talking, and as she left the parking lot, she rolled down her window, poked her head out and called, "bye friend!"
She was one of the few here who I have talked to about my struggling to have friends, to fit in. And she said that very deliberately, on purpose. It started my day with a smile, and I have continued to be blessed by friends throughout the day.
