Every Friday, Lisa-Jo Baker over at Tales from a Gypsy Mama gives us a word and a challenge. To write for 5 minutes without abandon. It is fun and I encourage you to try it. Here we go! The word is…
When you relocate, it can be hard. I miss my friends. I miss the community I was a part of. It feels like it will never get better. Years go by without making new friends and not feeling like I belong or something is wrong with me. I had no issues finding community, so what is wrong with me?
I became a mom. Oddly enough, that felt more lonely. I was in constant company with this new little man, but I still was missing conversations with adults. Being lonely was scary for me.
I think that I should have done better. I should have done more than ask God for friends~~ I should have asked Him what He wants from me. What do You want me to learn? How could I have grown if I sought after Him and used this time of loneliness? He was always there. He is still here and I treasure community and friends more now than I did.
