I went to the movies last night with a friend. She is not only a "friend", but she's a "Canadian friend"!. She is from Saskatoon, and has been living here for 3 years.
I feel like we can relate to eachother because we have SO much in common. We are both from Canada, both have 2 kids (same age difference), both miss our families tremendously, both stay-at-home moms, and we both have troubled relationships with the same certain people in our lives here.
She always motivates me to be better, and that I can cope with being here without the support group I have been so used to my entire life. We had a good chat last night, and although I get saddened by not being close to my family and not having that close bond and close friendship with friends here, she made me feel better.
I really appreciate her and all she has done to help me, and for being there for me. She's the one person here that never judges me, and understands precisely how I feel.....and for that I am extremely grateful. I hope that our friendship continues to flourish and we can become even closer.
