I've made better friendships with several residents of our condo complex. Maybe because they are also single ladies ... some my age, most are a bit older. I'm impressed with what I am learning from each of them. I've rekindled friends from my old neighborhood and enjoy the family who bought our home.
In a few instances, some friendships have not worked out as well. These ladies do not light my path ... rather put up obstacles and darkness with their constant negativity. Luckily, I have learned that being close friends with them just isn't working for me and I am blessed with the ability to keep my distance. But still be friendly.
Having the grandbabies keeps me young and tuned in with interests of almost four year olds. He is such a hoot! His parents converted his IKEA bed into a bunkbed and he is so proud. "Wanna check it out Gramma?"
I am surrounded by light!
