Yesterday was spent in prayer for Abby. She was so on-my-mind that I started writing a story about her. It came to me during my morning walk, and just spilled out on actual paper when I got home. Could she be happy at her new school? Would she fit in? Would she make friends? Everything was still a tense mystery.
The bus was late coming home, adding to my anxious suspense.
But, she had a very good day - a better day!
The class had a group project to work on, so Abby got to talk to a circle of girls - even about stuff other than school (IDK what those topics were as she refuses to tell me).
At recess, she connected with a girl named Kendra over drawing (which was funny because I’d planned the exact same thing for my Abby story) and the two also sat together at lunch.
On the bus ride home, another girl started a conversation with her!
Grand total of friends = 6!!!!
I know that God was in the midst of all that, moving things around to put the right chances in her path. He had to be! To go from zero to six friends in one day is nothing short of a miracle!
I pray that the friend trend continues today!
“A sweet friendship refreshes the soul.”
