Join #FiveMinuteFriday

Ok--5minute Friday--here we go.
I love meeting new people, trying new things, and facing (some) fears.
I have been struggling with loneliness since moving back here. Not a lot of friends and no connections.
Maybe that has happened for a reason. If I had a busy social life, I would not have followed bloggers and started one myself. It is intimidating joining something that is so out of my comfort zone and who does it so much better, but it led me to a couple of new groups that I will be joining next month. MOPS and a Bible study open to the community! Praise God! I am hoping to make friends and hopefully cure loneliness. Stepping out of my comfort zone and joining a community of talented writers and hoping to learn something from them. Stepping out in faith that God will allow me to be a blessing to others!

  3. Jenny- whenever I get lonely and in a funk, I just try to remember all the blessings I have in my life, and I thank God for them. A loving husband and a wonderful child- I know that you are blessed in this way also! So, hold your head up high and keep on trying even though life is challenging at times. Know that you are loved and people are praying for you! :-) ~Laura

  5. It's wonderful that instead of sitting around feeling sorry for yourself, you took action by starting a blog and reaching out to others and now, you are going to join some local groups. You're example to others.

    1. Thank you so much Rozanne for your encouragement! I really do appreciate it. I don't do sitting around very well and I am too much of a social person, so I feel like there are no other options:) Be blessed:)
