Today, for no apparent reason, a strong sense of loneliness came over me.
Where in the world did that come from?
Which was weird because today our UCHU group had a tour of Chick Fil A for our littles. So I was out and about conversing with other Mommas.
Afterwards, I stopped by my girl Shannon’s house and chatted with her for about an hour. Laughed and encouraged each other in the Lord.
Then I met up with my hubby at his coffee shop where he works and hung out with him along with my littles and enjoyed a delicious cup of java.
Ended my ‘outing’ day with hitting our local thrift store to just look around and see what I could see. I don’t like shopping at all, so this was a stretch for me. But I did it!
I quickly got my littles all snug in their beds for their afternoon naps once we arrived home
…………Then it was quiet. And lonely.
It was something I couldn’t shake expect for praying! Just a sense of being alone. Not having a friend in the world. 🙁
At any rate, I wondered how many homeschooling moms enter into loneliness……BUT STAY THERE!!! For months, years…… for a long time.
I found this article which I hope will encourage many ladies to get out and CONNECT!!
God created women as those that thrive on being with others.
We are not good to be alone.
We need each other.
We need RELATIONSHIPS.
And often times……..WE JUST DON’T CARE TO MAKE TIME FOR IT!
I hope this article encourages you to stop being robbed of what is freely yours……and mines. 🙂
