*Most of you know my lamenting stories of Florida. I’m better actually, I have been praying a lot for God’s will in this, and He has revealed some amazing things to both dh and me. For one, I think that He wanted us to come to Florida…and if we move BACK to Pittsburgh, we must do it for the right reasons. I wish God would be more specific sometimes. :o
That said, is it immature, stupid, whatever the word might be…to wish to move back to a place you resided for a while, because of old friendships? Dh and I have made some nice friends **here **in Florida, but I really grew close to neighbors and old work friends…we still stay in touch, but I miss them. :bighanky: I have missed them for a while, now.
My husband thinks it’s a bit on the foolish side to move back for ‘old friends.’ He said, we moved 1000 miles for ‘xyz,’ and ‘xyz’ happened. So, it’s not like we moved here, and everything went to pot. He added… "To move back…we need to make sure we do such a big move AGAIN for the right reasons.’’ (My husband loves Florida, and so I don’t know if I want to move back to place he really disliked–largely due to the long cold winters) But, he said last night, ‘wherever you and the kids are, that’s home for me.’ (but I know he hates the long cold winters) :o
I’m wondering if anyone here has ever moved away somewhere, and really missed the friendships that you built ‘back home?’ Did you ever move somewhere, and then move ‘‘back home,’’ shortly thereafter? If so, what motivated you to move ‘back home?’
I’m mainly concerned with the bolded questions, but feel free to answer all three…thank you. *
