New Friends

You never know when you might need someone.

Last week my boys and I hopped on a plane to Raleigh, N.C.  I rented a car and drove to Fayetteville where we met up with Tokitha and Cameron.  Tokitha will be relocating to Qatar too.  We met through a FB group and kind of clicked.  She was kind enough to allow us to stay with them during this short trip. I thought it would be good for the boys to meet so that they would have someone there that they knew.  Since Tokitha and I could relate to each other with this whole move thing, I also thought it would be a good idea for us to meet as well.  It was a nice little getaway.  While there we also stopped at another friends’ house, Vernice.  She and I were at the Qatar interviews together and she also lives in Fayetteville.  She will be teaching in Abu Dhabi.  I hope that meeting new friends will help to make the transition easier.  If you are attempting to relocate, I highly recommend befriending others that are in the same boat.

You never know when you might need someone.  I am looking forward to making new friends.

  1. I agree Jenn. I’m glad you’ve connected with someone as well. People think they don’t they need help but that is false. We need each other. Where will you be going again?


  2. I’m looking forward to making new friends as well. I’ve made a connection with another teacher that I will be working with and we’ve been in constant communication ever since. Although we’ve on only been in communication with each other since March, I feel as if I’ve known her my entire life. We’ve been a great support for each other, when she freaks out, I calm her down and vice versa. It truly does help to have someone in your corner who is experiencing the same things as you.
