You may remember our coffee date last month with Madison of Wetherills Say I Do and Rachel of Oh Simple Thoughts. It was such a wonderful linkup, it has now become a monthly one, featuring community, vulnerability, and honesty, and growing in our blog friendships.
And this month's topic is community, on that note. So here is my vulnerability: I don't know that I have a true community here in this city we live in just yet. I have a few friends, but I'm still searching for that place I feel like I fit. And a lot of the time, the most community I really feel...is here, in Blogland, with all of the sweet readers and friends I've made through this outlet.
Today...I really miss real life community. I'm currently sitting on the couch, mouth breathing, face swollen, tissues nearby, because I have a raging sinus infection. And I can't help but think about how nice it would be for someone to bring me Panera mac&cheese for lunch because it's my favorite sick food.
I'm sure someday we will have that again. We're seeking a new church, and looking for friends, and ways to meet people. But right now we don't have strong community yet. And sometimes it doesn't bother me at all, because I like alone time, and I'm great at entertaining myself. But today, I kind of wish we had some closer friendships.
Real life friends, don't read this and panic over my well being. I'm good. But you know I'm an introvert and putting myself out there is difficult for me, and sometimes I would like for it to be less difficult. But really, I'm ok. There's just nothing like a sick day to make you miss your friends and family.
