Random Thoughts

Been watching Jam and Jerusalem again - treated myself while they were on sale before the holidays.  Also I got an email from a friend in England.  She was telling me about the group of women she stitches with.  Seeing the group of women on Jam and Jerusalem and receiving that email got me thinking.  I don't have a group of women friends.  I'm really not that social.  A part of wishes I did have friends like those.  I spend a lot of time working and spending time with my family and don't seem to have relationships outside of that.  I'm also quite shy.  I don't really like meeting new people, makes me feel really nervous.  There are a couple of groups I've thought about joining, but the thought of going to something alone scares me.  I have an accent too and that draws a lot of attention I'm not really comfortable with.  I'm really such a fraidy cat.  Sigh.

  1. Don't feel bad, Sharon. I have several friends (Rosa, Julie, and Ryan) that I'm good friends with but that I don't see in person often. Ryan I've never seen. I just talk to him online and on the phone. Julie and Rosa have both come here, and I've gone to stay with Julie before. We are very close, and know each other well. None of them live close to me though. Julie is two hours away, and she's the closest. Ryan is half the continent away (in Canada) and Rosa is at least ten hours if I drive (North Carolina). That doesn't make them any less my friends. Oh, and Vicki who I met when I was in England and who I talk to on messenger all the time. (Neither of us have overseas calling.) Just because people don't live near you, doesn't make them any less of a friend. You know some people from your blog, and maybe you could strike up a conversation on messenger with some of them. I find it much easier to talk to people on the computer than I do in person. So don't feel like it's hopeless. You DO have options!!
