The Scene:
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.

The Cost?
Less than $20 per person

The Impact?
I realized that I did indeed have friends in the new neighborhood and in the new congregation at church.  I realized I would be 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.

The Challenge:
Reach out--even to those you don't know well.
