I have this friend who moved with her family to a different state in June. She's a busy girl and has spent a lot of the time since then getting settled into her new surroundings. She has a lot of family, but none of them live in her area. She also has a lot of friends, but none of them live near her either. Word has it that my friend has become very lonely. She's not bored,'cause she has lots to do, but she longs for a friend in her new community.
If you happen to see her, remember to say "Hello", and if you are so inclined to go the extra mile then ask her to join you for lunch, or to go to a movie, or to go shopping, or ask about her family, or her thoughts, or her opinions.. Ask my friend anything!! I think she would love to join you in doing whatever you would like to do. Ya see, she's feeling pretty needy. The world is a lonely place when you don't have a friend nearby.
And we all know that even the best of husbands is not the same as having a girlfriend. And, if you happen to not live near my friend in Oklahoma, remember there are lots of people like my friend, so take the time to include anyone you're aware of who doesn't seem connected. There are a lot of really nice people out there just waiting to be included.
My friend is a little whiny today.
