#3 in the Peach Keeper series
I have met some doozies in my search for friends to talk to. (Because ya’ll KNOW I love to talk.) And moving can be lonely sometimes. I have pursued people that really I had nothing in common with, but they seemed to be the ones I thought I was “supposed” to friend. Sometimes I was just lazy, sometimes desperate, sometimes over confident about their ability to fit into my life. I have opened myself up to people that I was completely unprepared for, some seriously quirky people that I had no idea what to do with them as things went along. People that Jeff would not let me answer the phone if they called. Stalker weird.
People that then I maybe didn’t do a good job unfriending or even friending in the first place. Bad Nicole.
But then there are the others. The ones who have made me who I am today. Who gave a piece of themselves to carry with me wherever I go to fill my heart with happiness. All of the lovely people who have so many common interests and experiences, kindred spirits. The ones that I am excited to see a message from or see their phone number pop up. The ones that I wish all lived right next door.
(I have this silly dream that someday I will hold the “I Love Nicole” conference. LOL All my besties from each state and season will all join me for a weekend of goodness, because I know they would all love each other, too, of course.)
Those are the RIGHT people. Those are the ones I hold dear to my heart. Those are the ones who light up my day. I am so blessed to have found so many of them, in so many places. So incredibly thankful for you.
I hope that you, too, have a heart filled with the RIGHT friends.
I hope you have enjoyed this little series. And I hope you pick up a copy of the book. It really is quite delightful.
