Friendship Friday # 3

Welcome everyone!
It's Friendship Friday at Funwithbella and a Friday Follow Celebration, hosted by

Friday Follow
Thank you for stopping by! I hope you take a minute or two to look around! And now on to my Friendship Friday...

Before Jelly Belly was born, it took a lot of effort for me to make conversation with people I did not know.

Motherhood changed all that.


Soon after her birth, I found myself at La Leche meetings and talking to complete strangers at the grocery store and at the library. I even reached out to women on-line and participated in forums and discussions.  I truly surprised myself.  I especially surprised the hubby.  Having a child instantly connected me to women I never knew existed. I initiated conversations in hopes of finding someone else who was experiencing nursing nightmares and sleepless nights. Becoming a mother brought me many opportunities to make new friends and strengthened the friendships I already had. All of a sudden I had lots to talk about and lots to share.  I became more open minded, less judgmental and welcomed the chance to interact with other moms. 

I am so glad I did. 

Thank you Jelly Belly for bringing new friends into our lives.

I hope you consider joining us on FUN Friendship Fridays
and
Be sure to head over to
to make new friends!

When we left Phoenix, I must admit that I wasn't sure we would keep in touch, but I am so very glad we have. I think our girls helped to bring us back together and I am thankful for that too. I'm so glad I get to count you as one of my friends :)

I agree that having kids enters you into a whole new world of friendships and conversations. Though as the kids get older it isn't often difficult to finish those conversations as your always keeping one eye on a kiddo.

That photo IS gorgeous! I remember attending a moms group at my church right after I had my daughter and thinking "who are all these women?" I'd been at that church for YEARS! I guess they'd all been hiding in the nursery wing, but they became some of my best friends. :)
