9 HUGS, 3 children, 4 adults (1 husband, 2 friends at Smith’s Nursery, 1 new friend)
My house is practically bare. I have no food. I am running out of household supplies. I really need to run some errands. Yet, I have somehow found myself busy every day this week visiting with friends.
Yes, food is important nourishment for the body, but friendships are important nourishment for the soul. (I know, very cliche. Just go with me here.) And, unlike food which can quickly and easily be purchased and instantly available, friendships require time, care and attention. This is something that I am just beginning to understand. I have taken them for granted my whole life. If you like me, I will hear from you. If you don’t, I won’t. Wow, that sounds so cold when I say it out loud. I am learning that friendships are a process of give and take. They are a process of sharing and listening. I can’t expect to have good friends unless I become a good friend.
So, the food will have to wait. I have enough to sustain us for another few days. My soul needs nourishment and I know just where to find it.
Please accept this blog as my virtual hug to you.
