Today we are telling our stories about what it feels like to trust a friend. And not trust a friend.
You’re invited. Just as you are.
So let’s spend our five minutes of writing today, sharing about community. Fight it, love it, hate it, hurt or healed by it, we are certainly built for it.
Set a timer and just write. Don’t worry about making it just right or not.
Go all in with your words.
Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking
Are you ready?
When I think of community I think of our closest group of friends. The ones that have been there for us through thick and thin. The ones that our families get together for dinner and maybe a game of big inflatable ball volleyball. (Oh Yes We Did!) The ones that are kids all get along and we get to enjoy the time together. The babies above that bring excitement to the group!
These are the ones that are closest to our hearts. They have supported us through good times and challenging times. In the transition from the church we were all going to and God moved us. When we thought we might be moving. Although sad, they were there encouraging and praying for us. (Thankfully we aren’t moving!)
We are creating memories together that will last a lifetime. Football season and our weekly Sunday night get together for dinner and a football game. Springtime and BBQ’s and big inflatable ball volleyball games, in the dark! Card games and more.
Our children are developing friendships that will last a lifetime. Hubbies are bonding and developing their own community. And the women… well we all love to talk and eat and talk some more, and I enjoy my time with each of them.
I consider ourselves blessed to have a community of friends that are there for each other to encourage and pray for each other. Also to sit back, relax, and enjoy each other’s company.
It brings us JOY!
