I read these words recently. I added them to my heart. It feels like a theme, with every arrow pointing me to a question…why do I feel so all alone ? My husband is my best friend, without a doubt. My children are my treasures, and sometimes, I am too intensely consumed by them. Jesus is a companion…every day. And still….an emptiness that is caused by the lack of women friends. I see women who have it, that thing… that elusive thing, the comfort of a friend dropping by, girls night out, and laughter that turns to tears. I am happy for them because, I have known that. I have felt that, and it is good. I am envious, too…because, I don’t have it now. And I miss it. I am praying for it. I am praying the same for my daughters, not just for friends, but for a sisterhood.
