A New Praise

This morning on our walk around the neighborhood, Keegan and I passed a mom my age with a baby strolling around. I went and introduced myself because the area where we live has mainly elementary age kids. She lives one street over and has a baby that will turn one later in July. She made mention that there are not any babies her daughters age and have been watching houses that sell to see who moves in. So she had been waiting to see who was moving in our blue house. I was talking to her for a while and noticed she had a baby bump. I boldly asked her if she was pregnant, hoping that I would not regret it, and she is due late December! The Lord is good. He knew I desperately needed someone in the same boat as me that lived around. We already are going to go walk in the mornings and set up some playdates. Thank you Lord for your attention to the details of my life and my dying need for fellowship as a stay at home mom.

How wonderful! I know how you feel! I was praying for a friend like that for a while. I do not have any little ones yet but we are in the process of getting that going!! We happened to meet a couple about 6 months ago who have become great great friends of ours. We actually met them while they were visiting our church. I felt like I needed to ask them where they live. It turns out they live right behind us and 3 houses over. I invited them over for dinner that night and we have been friends since. It is so great to have a great friend who lives in your neighborhood and is in the same life stage!

God works in mysterious ways! We thought the same thing about our neighborhood about 3 years ago. Then we had a dentist and his family with a little girl just Mallory's age move in. It was great! They catch eachother outside playing almost everyday!
