Last week a good friend called and invited us (and some other friends) to an impromptu pot luck dinner at the park. I'm so glad that I went. It was such a delight to see all of our children running about in the grass, no one wearing perfect clothes (that's a thing I struggle with... children in brand new perfect clothes that cost more than my entire wardrobe), us women in our long skirts, our huge spread of simple yet nutritious foods. I loved that we all brought reusable plates and cups... none of us are into the whole disposable thing. It's so nice to be around people who make you feel understood, less alone. I enjoyed being reminded of the fact that I do have friends. Lately I've been battling feeling rejected by certain groups of people. But like this friend stated the last time we hung out... if I was spending time with those groups of people (the ones who reject and don't understand me) then that would be taking away from the time I could be spending with friends who do get me. So, I gotta remember that on these days when the enemy is trying to convince me that I have no one.
