"Make New Friends, But Keep the Old"

I can understand the excitment my friend Courtenay has for her young married couples group through Church. Last night John and I went to a bowling event put on by the Mid-Florida Chapter of the National MS Society. This event was for 20 and 30 year olds diagnosed with MS and a guest. It was a lot of fun to just go, hang out nad meet other people my age in the same boat as me. Although, the topic of MS didn’t really come up a whole lot and it was a very small part of any discussions.

We met a very nice couple, Peter and Ellen. Ellen just moved down here to FL in March from Wisconsin. The poor girl is even a Packers fan, says she has been her entire life. But we can forgive her that 🙂 Ellen and Peter live in a city over from John and I and we have lots in common, including an enjoyment for motorcycles.

I am really looking forward to more gatherings with this group. It’s funny, we’ve all come together because of this one common pain in the rear. But it’s only a very very small part of who we are. None of us are letting this mess with our lives. And for us, that’s the way it should be.

    Awesome, Val!

    Isn’t making a core group of friends fabulous?? Seriously…it makes going through stuff so much easier.

    I’m glad you’ve been able to connect with some new friends.
