In this post, I will probably touching on like 8 different posts that I wanted to make but oh well.
Ive metioned before that im from Ohio. We have lived here in Pittsburgh for about 2 years now. We moved here knowing noone. Since that time, Ive made a handful of friends. Mostly some lovely ladies that I work with at church and like 1 or 2 outside of that. Its been difficult for me. Ive always been a real social person and never had a problem making friends. I love people! It has just been really lonely here for me since weve moved.
But I digress.....I was invited to join a womens group at our church called Apples to Gold and our first meeting was last night. Basically it is a group of older ladies coming together with the younger ladies of the church every tuesday for 7 weeks. We get together and cook, talk, study the bible, eat and just be women! Here is the link to the program http://www.applesofgold.org
I have to say that I was totally nervous about going to this meeting. Im always afraid I will offend someone by something I say or hurt their feelings. I also am not the typical church going woman. I can swear like a sailor, not to mention drink like one and I love ALL kinds of music. I struggle with myself because these things make me feel less of a christian. I kept wondering to myself, "will I fit in with these women?"
Anyways, it was exactly what I needed in my life right now. The women are ALL amazing and funny and I just cant wait to get to know them all more! Ill keep filling you all in on my journey through this!
