I can honestly say that I *thought* this season of life would be easy.
Being married & living with my best friend.. who happens to be my husband sounded simple.
And yes, that part is (for the most part) easy peasy.
What I didn’t realize is how much I would miss having friends at my disposal. Take college for example: at any given moment of the day, I could call up one of my girl friends to grab a cup of coffee, go for a walk, or sit and watch Lifetime movies with. Although I still have those girlfriends from college, none of them live near me.
I struggle with making friends. I don’t love having tons of “friends” and no real friends. You know what I’m saying?
When David and I first got married, we struggled to find a church home that fit our needs. When we finally found one, we got plugged into a small group. It wasn’t all we hoped it would be, but we stuck it out. Eventually, at the end of the year, 3 out of 5 of the couples moved away. We prayed as a group (the two remaining couples) about adding to our numbers and through word of mouth and placement through our church, we now have SEVEN AMAZING COUPLES in our small group. The Lord answered that prayer abundantly.
He answered our prayer for more small group couples, but He also answered my prayer for friends. I am so thankful. and SO overwhelmed. in a good way.
