Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'll be letting you know what I did, yesterday.
I did something I haven't been doing, often. At least, not for a while.
I went to the legion. The location on Howard Ave., Windsor. Just south of Hwy #3.
Normally, I would sit with a realtor friend of mine, and her boyfriend. However, they weren't there.
Even so, I wasn't alone.
My friend C, who went with me a few weeks ago, joined me. Just so you know, the last time we were there together, C actually won the draw that occurs after dinner is over. It had been her first time in attendance and she won! :)
In addition, a Facebook (FB) friend who I met previously, also joined us.
You see, it was F's birthday! So, he joined us to celebrate his special day.
At times in the past, I sang for the group. Yesterday, I didn't do that. But, we did have the music man wish F Happy Birthday!
Something I got to do, was join in and do some line dancing. Only for a few songs. More, than I normally do. lol This is truly a lot of exercise for me!
How thankful I am that my chiropractor helped me feel better, last week! If I hadn't had the adjustment I needed, I wouldn't have been able to do any dancing. And, it would have been difficult to sit there for about 3 1/2 hours!
I must admit, it was so nice having friends join me, there.
It was also a blessing having so many people come and say 'hello' to me. With some even asking me if I was going to sing. :) Which, I didn't... :(
Are you surprised that a fellow actually joined me and my friend, for this time of fun, food and fellowship?
To be honest, it wasn't part of C's plan. Nor, mine. At least, not to begin with.
However, on FB I wished F Happy Birthday! And, found out that he was spending the day, alone.
No one was going to spend time with him, even though this was a special day for him.
I must admit, it made me feel horrible for F.
You see, with having had so many surgeries, over the past 2 3/4 years, I understood how horrible F must have felt. For, I spent a birthday and some other special days, alone.
Due to going through what I felt he was going through, I felt like C and I needed to lift F up, and encourage him. To fulfill what God would have us do, for others.
Thinking of this, brought to mind Galatians 6:2, "Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ."
Knowing that I've experienced burdens and troubles that it seems no one else seemed to care about, made me feel badly for F.
Feeling like no one really cares, makes the loneliness that can be felt, even worse. At least, for some people.
Even so, God provided.
Both for me, in the past. And, for F, yesterday.
For this, I thank God!
How wonderful it is that He helped F to feel important on his special day. Especially, since his age made him part of a new decade. :)
Our threesome had a great time, together. Along with other people, too!
We had wonderful conversations, prayer before our meal, and together enjoyed the delicious meal that was part of our reason for going.
Thank You, Lord! Thank You, for that special day... with special people!
Until next time...
