Since my retirement in 2009, I have vowed I would go to the Senior Center and join so I could make new friends. You know the tale of all good intentions and and where they went.
Last week wth the whole-hearted support of all my lovely Spark friends, I got up on Monday mornng and went to the Senior Center and joined. There I met another group of caring and loving friends. I m so glad I went. And I shall now be going every Monday until my GGD, Sloan, who is 2 1/2 and newly potty-trained, can go to the nursery. Then I will try to go at least 3 tmes a week.
I lost my DH almost 6 years ago, and have done nothing to make a place for myself among those like myself. It was interesting that there I met a lady who had gone to the same junior high and high school as I had in the same years and gradulated the same year. How small is our world?
Ths had made me feel like I can continue this journey with some purpose.
As an update to my last blog, January 1, 2013, I am continuing on. I have lost 9 pounds. Not a great amount for almost 2 months, but I am at least being consistent.
So....now I have put two long intended journeys under my belt. The next one is to find a church where I can meet another group of caring and loving friends. I have not attended church since I lost my DH and it is time!
