One of life’s little treasures that stirs the soul.
In a coffee shop
Alone but not.
Steaming hot liquid
Surrounded by stories
Some fun, some gory.
Connected by threads
Indeed, life is splendid.
Life is so busy.
Work, family, hobbies, pets, bills, etc.
You name it, we do it.
So those rare moments when we take a “time-out” from life and just meet a friend for coffee and talk about anything and everything about life are special.
Today I did just that. Starbucks. Misto. Comfy chair. Any topic up for grabs.
In today’s society, so much is disconnect. Facebook. Instagram. Twitter. Texting. Face time.
You can never replace the connection made when you’re face to face with someone. The bond that’s formed. The sharing that takes place that otherwise wouldn’t.
Humans were meant for companionship. We were not created to be alone. We were created for fellowship with others. For supporting one another when times are tough. For laughing together. Crying together. Winning together. Losing together. All the bad in the world that happens we need one another to persevere.
Today call a friend (don’t text). Invite him or her for coffee. Or a walk. Lunch. Or any other face-to-face get together.
Take that time. Relish those moments. You need them. More than you know.
