UP AND DOWNS

Saturday, May 09, 2009

My fasing blood sugar is sure having its ups and downs and so am I. Some how spring has made me very homesick for my friends. Having moved here a year ago I find the people very nice, but I miss my friends of 35 years. Those are the people who have seen you through your good and bad times. They really know you. Like the old saying goes, a good friend is someone who really knows you and likes you anyway. I guess that is what I miss. It seems silly, but I also miss knowing where to go to get anything. I knew my way around. I knew the stores. I knew where a great butcher was, and a great bakery. I just knew the area. I am learning where things are here and it is getting better. I guess the last few days have been down days. Maybe it has been the weather. As my good friend would day, God said this had come to pass, he didn't say it had come to stay!

    Even tho i have never moved to a new place. My husband whom I met over the internet moved here, I seen how it was hard for him to learn his way around. He couldn't go anywhere for a while without me cause he would get lost. It only took him a few weeks to learn his way around to the most travled places like (walmart). After about 6 months he could find his way around to just about anywhere he couldn't tell ya the name of the streets to most places ..lol.. but he can find his way around to everywhere now.

    Now i have had all my friends move away to other states so i know what you mean about missing them and I agree for some reason spring is when u seem to really miss them the most. I think cause it is getting nice out and you would beable to get out and do things together. Just take the time out to call them once a week , and try to arrange a visit. In the mean time we are all here for you for all the support you need.

    Hope things get easier for you. Have a great week end emoticon
