community. again.

yesterday was a bit rough. for no apparent reason. and by 4 o'clock i was gasping for some metaphorical fresh air. texted a friend- threw out a line- and she grabbed on. after kids were bed-time ready, i left the house alone and drove to meet her with a mixture of quiet and very very loud music in the car. my heart a jumble of things i couldn't find.

we gathered together and poured out our days. and, slowly, out came our hearts. right onto the table.

neither of us had answers for the other, it seemed. but, once again, the beautiful mystery of the community He has made worked in the midst of two women looking at each other with honesty.

and i drove home different. smiling. thankful.

community rocks. i'm just sayin'.
