hi all… i am kinda embarrassed to ask this in a prayer forum or any forum for that matter. :blushing: ok here it is… :blushing:
i have lived in my city for almost 9 years, and met alot of neat people, but my health keeps me from interacting with them alot of the time.
i interact usually at church. then iam to tired to hang around and socialize. i didn’t have alot of time for personal friendships. so guess what? one day, hubby and i were in the mall, and he was wheeling me around in my wheelchair right? ( i don’t use it all the time only when we are out for extended time because of my back getting too sore )
i saw these 2 ladies chatting and having fun. then i thought about it for a bit, and thought, hmm, wouldn’t that be great to have a new best friend? someone to hang out with, can with, chat with, shop with, and so on?
i don’t know why i didn’t think of it before! i was too wrapped up in hubby and worrying about my health and so on, and being tired. so i thought, well, friends might not understand when i get tired all the time right? so i never bothered to make close friends with a Christian lady.
then i saw these 2 ladies having the time of their life, and felt a pang of regret! i thought, well, your always waiting for hubby to get home so he can take you out and you guys can have fun! ( i usually can’t go anywhere without him because of my health )
ok, get to the point will ya TC? what i want to ask you to pray for is to ask God to send me a new best friend! wouldn’t that be great? someone who understands the disabled, and someone who is caring and kind and a Catholic! wouldn’t that be fab?? it would for me!
i don’t care if she is 90! i would love a new best friend to visit, to pray with, to go to Mass with, to shop with you name it! iam extremely embarrassed! why? because i usually don’t make such public requests. but i thought about it, and i figured, the more help i have praying about it maybe God will grant my prayers if more people are asking with me:)
my childhood best friend died in 2002 of severe burns. i had not seen her in 25 years or more:( i guess i just kinda shut down after that. i would love to have a Catholic lady for a best friend.
