Trying to connect after relocating...

As you are aware my family has relocated to a different city. I don't want to keep looking back but the community we were in... we were very connected between committees, friends, relatives, support groups and church family we were always busy and always doing something. Fast forward four weeks and cue the music, I'm a Long Way from Home by Shooter Jennings in the movie Walk the Line. My days are filled with a few drives here and there it really is helping us get used to our surroundings but my heart wants to do something more. To help others, to serve and to become connected in the largest city in Canada. Really does sound overwhelming on it's own.

I am optimistic about meeting like individuals who like to make this world a better place for others and make a difference every day they are here. You see I have felt I haven't done that since we moved and that is really hard for me. I love people, I love helping people and sharing my life with others. It just seems as though my hands have been tied since we moved here. No one to help, no where to serve... and sometimes nothing to do.

If anyone has ideas for ways to connect and help within our community here we would be more than grateful. Both my husband and I would love to get involved. We are both used to keeping busy and too much idle time is not good for you and your well being.
