We had just moved. I was feeling sorry for myself. My kids were having a hard time adapting and were acting out a bit. I didn't feel like I knew anyone and was missing my old friends and neighborhood.
The $20 Difference
A friend from our new neighborhood stopped by with flowers. Later that day, another girl I had recently met at church stopped by with more flowers.
Less than $20 per person
I realized that I did indeed have friends in the new neighborhood and in the new congregation at church. I realized I would be ok...my kids would be ok...and that I have a loving Heavenly Father watching over me. It started my way out of the funk I felt I was in.
Reach out--even to those you don't know well.
