i love ’em.
last night i partied it up with mary my lovely friend and landlord for her birthday. she has some incredible people in her life and i was blessed to get to share an evening with them. we spent time oohing and ahhing over the pictures of george clooney that everyone brought to honor mary with and then ate fabulous food. as we sat around talking till nearly midnight i was reminded how real this need for community is. i need my friends.
tonight i went to see the drowsy chaperone with danielle and it was pretty entertaining. very silly but i did laugh quite a bit. but the best part was the conversation had over a large cookie and ice cream at bonfire.there’s something holy that happens when two “sisters” share dessert and share their hearts.
for me these connections help me understand my life, they help me see the beauty around me, they push me to be who i really am and recognize what i am not, they remind me that i am living and allowed to “be” not just “do”. i exist in a very social world but so often feel alone in the midst of it. i am lied to by the devil and often fall for it believing that i am invisible. it is in these conversations that my spirit is watered and my heart softened.
thank you friends…
