Extending

"You can't stay in your corner of the forest waiting for others to come to you.  You have to go to them sometimes." ~ A.A. Milne

Where do you need to go today?

    -Up the block to visit a neighbor?
    -Down the road to bring a welcome gift?
    -To a friend's house for a cup of coffee?
    -To the store to buy groceries?
    -To the doctor so you can feel better?
    -To the country to have some solitude?
    -To town to go shopping?
    -To the library to get some books?

Where do you need to go?  Have you thought about inviting someone along?  Today I'm thankful for some new found friends that called and came over.  The truth is, we do a lot of of 'going' to other people.  Having some other friends who come to us to encourage...or just to try to watch a meteor shower on a cold, dark night...well, that's fun because it doesn't happen very often.  We just feel blessed.  And I think I need to start being a little more proactive.  Our door is always open, but I'm not very good at extending invitations.  (I'm often just as happy if people invite themselves or Joseph invites them...)  The road of friendship goes both ways.  It's not a one-way street.
