Friends, Family, Neighbors I Am Missing You?
Wednesday, January 16, 2013
This week has been so quiet and lonely. Why is everybody curled up in their own little corner of the world? No one comes by to visit, no one calls; haven't heard from my best friend in over a week. My daughter-in-law and my other best friend are just about the only exceptions. I appreciate that more than they will ever know.
Writing this, I know the answer... There is a saying that if you point your finger at someone, you have 3 more pointing right back at you. So I'm sure it's me. I must make myself get out there & connect with people. I must pray for the Lord to help me care more for my friends, family, and neighbors. I must go to where they are and not just expect them to come to me.
Technology is a great thing, but it has hurt us all in a way. We're all so busy on our iPhones, computers, TV, Games, Facebook, email, and everything else that we allow ourselves to be bombarded with. We're too busy for much contact with one another. I don't talk to my husband because I'm too busy watching my show. Sad, but true. I've told myself to just go visit one person this week and another next week, but then I don't do it. Or for a while I will, but then I slack off again. Is this how it's going to be? Or can I make myself be more charitable and sociable. Hopefully, my answer will be yes.
