Bonnie, Almost 69
I will be 69 in a couple of weeks. I’m already thinking about 70. We moved to Montana 16 years ago. Live in a rural area. Therefore I haven’t made too many friends especially in my age group. My very best friends of many years live in another state. I miss them terribly.
They are busy traveling being with their grandchildren….
My husband is 7 years older. He is still working and healthy. My mother passed 8 years ago. I don’t know what to expect in my up coming days. Not a lot of opportunities around for me. My small town living is not what I expected since I’m a newbie even after 16 years. My drive to the city is over an hour.
I’ve felt it difficult to build friendships. I try to spend my time quilting and reading, I’m not able to maintain a garden anymore. I’ve worked very hard out here and now my body does not hold up as well. My Grandkids live out of state they don’t keep in touch as much they’ve
Grown up. I don’t know how I’m suppose to feel, what I should be doing? I feel somewhat lost.
Everyone around me is busy. I try not to think about how active I use to be and I could go anywhere and do anything and making new friends was easy. My husband is very tired when he gets home…I don’t want bother him to go anywhere. I just joined a bible study that will end for the season. Now what?
