A Forgotten Lovely

Now that I am back to "normal" life after having a house full of company, and the pleasure of having all of my children home from school for two weeks, I have been struggling a little with loneliness.  Mostly feeling ignored by friends back home whom I honestly thought would keep in better touch.  I even posted this as my status on Facebook last night.

Anybody else ever feel like they've been forgotten?

You want to hear something ironic, but not particularly surprising (in my case)? Today my Bible Study group started a new study. While watching the intro video, the teacher said, "You may feel forgotten in this life. GOD has not forgotten you."  I KNEW this. I can honestly say that God has brought me to a place that I don't worry about what other people think more than I think about what HE thinks of me. However, I think I am just a little sad about the separation between myself and the people I love. I told my friend Susan this morning, I think I needed the down time after moving here. The quiet, and focus time on my kids. And now it is hitting me just how quiet things really are.
I am very excited about the start of this new study, since there is a lot of homework, and it will drive my time spent in studying the Bible more deeply. That really grounds me, and helps with the times when I struggle with "me".  I couldn't help think of this verse this morning.
Hebrews 13:5b "God has said, Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you."

Here is an outfit I wore before Christmas, but forgot to post. I have been loving the cheetah print trend, but didn't want to put much money into it, since I am not sure how long it will be around. I thrifted this belt for $.99, and thought it was the perfect touch.
Shirt: J Crew, thrifted
Skirt: J Crew No. 2 Pencil in Vibrant Flame
Shoes: Anthropologie Stacked Strap Heels
Belt: Talbots Calf-hair Leopard, thrifted
Watch: J Crew
Necklace: Anthropologie Citrus Twist Necklace (in Gold)

How about you? Do you ever feel forgotten?
