More and more, I realize my need for my love language to be met through quality time with people that I love.
I quickly get overwhelmed by the craziness of my office, so knowing that friends are coming this weekend to spend their time cleaning and organizing where I don't have the time to do it...such a blessing.
Our weekly Bible study is a refuge to me as we connect over the word and laugh together and cry together. That connection is an answer to prayer.
A long newsy email from one of my best friends and one from my sister is just what I needed to feel connected to those back home.
Many times, I get questions from my friends about things that they can send for me through those traveling through. I always give them a list of items that I'm craving...
-dark chocolate peanut m&m's
-tortillas (flour and corn)
But, the thing I crave most is that connection...that quality time...a handwritten letter...and thoughtful gift...words from a friend...
I'm so blessed to have so many in my life who are a constant source of encouragement. I know that while I am far away, for many, I am never far from their minds. That is a true blessing.
