Near and Far

November 21, 2013 § 2 Comments

It’s been awhile since my last post. Things have been going well for me. I am still finding joy in the little things in my life. There are some days that I forget to stop for a minute to be thankful. When I do step back for a moment, the day gets better and I find I am more blessed than I ever thought.  

Today, I am thankful for friends near and far. Recently, I have more been content being in LA. It’s true that this city is huge and spread out but, we have been fortunate to find a church and a community to be engaged in. Not everyday is a perfect day but it’s much better from a year ago when I had fewer friends and more lonely days. 

On the days I miss home, I am happy that I can call, text or facetime/skype with a friend that is farther away and find support. It is hard to be away from those friends but it’s also nice to find encouragement from them no matter where I go. I hope I am an encouragement to those friends as well. It’s definitely not easy to keep up with everyone every day especially with busy schedules. It’s just nice that when I can find a minute they are right there for me. 

Many thanks to my friends that are here in LA and those that live in another state. I know it’s difficult to keep in touch but I am happy that we are friends and we can be there as inspiration as we walk through this life.
