Making friends

A couple weeks ago, I was having trouble sleeping, so I decided to do a google search. Now, I'd been searching google for moms' groups and ladies' clubs in Doha ever since I knew that we were moving here, but I'd had little success. This particular time, I put "moms doha qatar" in the search box. The first listing that came up wasn't completely in English, but the second one was a blog by a woman living here in Qatar, My Quotidian Mysteries. Looking back, I really think God's hand was in it, because, surely, I'd put those words in before. I was so excited, I left her a comment and hoped that she didn't think that I was crazy. Luckily, she didn't and we met up yesterday. Check out her blog, if you'd like. She's a wonderful Christian lady, with a daughter just a few months older than the twins. We had a good time talking about Doha and our kids. The babies were their usual adorable selves, helping themselves to her daughter's snack, sharing their sippy cups, and giving aggressively friendly hugs. And, as if that wasn't exciting enough, Laura's blog also attracted another woman who is coming to Qatar in a month. She visited my blog through Laura's and left a very nice comment. God is so faithful to all our needs, working for our good, even through the blogosphere. :)
