Big life change
by Linda Fitzgerald
(Long Beach Ca.)
Living in Pa all my life, when my husband died I decided to move to Calif to be near my son and family grandson is 7 .
It was hard and I was depressed for 3 or more years because I left all my friends and one is over 50 yr. friendship but I know this was best for me.
At first my friend and I Skyped then she got off the internet and this again was hard on me as I was left to wonder around here in Calif and wonder what am I doing .
Its been a hard transition but now after 6 yrs I am glad I did it . I have always made friends easily when in Montclair it wasn't hard at all then I moved to Long Beach and found it quite different. It isn't as friendly as Montclair was . I still go back there occasionally.
Now I found that having Joy in the Lord has been there for me all a long, I just had to find it again.
