Alhamdulillah today I was feeling much better, thank you all for your du'a and advice.
I made plans with my friend Dusty to spend some time together since it had been literally ages since I had seen any of my friends outside of jumm'ah. Dusty is from my hometown and converted to Islam just a few short months after me at the end of last Ramadhan mashaAllah. She is a real sweetheart and very sincere while still silly, lol. My kind of lady :-P
First we went to the mall and looked around a bit for long skirts. We found several at maurices of all places in dark denim, khaki, and brown.
Then we went to the masjid to pray asr and we stayed in the masjid library looking for books until maghreb (we both came out with stacks of free books alhamdulillah). Most of my books were about Christianity and explaining Islam as I am looking for materials to show my family to help explain Islam better inshaAllah.
After that we decided to eat dinner at Arby's. I had a large jamocha shake. I don't know if you know how huge that is, but I think i gained 10 lbs LOL.
Next we went to wal-mart so I could get some cookie sheets since my old ones rusted out.
Walmart happens to be next to the movies so we decided to catch a flick before we went home.
Overall it was a good night alhamdulillah. Me and Dusty both had a blast :-)
I think maybe my issue isn't overall loneliness, but I just feel that way when I am with my family.
Allah kareem, inshaAllah khair
