I am really thankful because it seems I have a made a few new friends here who are young mums (that's what you call a mom here). I have enjoyed a few morning teas with them, coffee and shopping, and a Jane Austen movie night. It has been really nice to have some young woman to talk to about pregnancy, child birth, and life with a new baby! I'm praying God provides deep, long lasting friendships here during this time of life!
Making new friends definitely makes me miss my friends from my small group at Grand Avenue. These woman are a blessing in my life and I miss them so much. I am so thankful for all the Panera coffee dates, craft nights, babies multiplying, deep conversations, laughter, shopping trips, prayer, encouragement, getting dinner ready for our men, babysitting, and really all the time we spent together. Though no one could replace this group of friends, I hope I find friends like these here in NZ!
