As I stood in front of my dryer, pulling out another heap of clean clothes, I wistfully looked out the window. It was another day of the same chores, PJ Masks and following the demands of my toddler.

Even though I had a list of things to do and a toddler keeping me on my toes, I felt alone. Sure, I could climb into the car and head to the library or the grocery store. My longing was more than being around people, it was a connection on a deeper level with another Christian woman.

Someone who got me, I mean really understood me.

We have a full life, busy to the max and yet we feel lonely. #friendship #friends Click To Tweet

I desire times spent with a friend at my counter sipping coffee and talking. A companion when I have to go to the grocery store, or someone who is available to just physically talk throughout the day.

Maybe I’m looking for a respite from the mundane of life, someone who can share in my struggles and commiserate when I’m questioning my feelings or my faith. Someone to encourage and inspire me to grow in faith.

Do you have a friend like this?

Although my husband is one of my best friends, I desire to make a deeper connection with another woman. My husband doesn’t feel what I do and his emotions and makeup are vastly different from mine. Maybe it sounds cliché, but I’m still searching for my best friend forever.

I chuckled when my teenage daughter wanted to give her best friend one-half of a necklace because it seemed so cheesy and juvenile. But what if our greatest longing is to make a connection with someone of the same gender who we can’t live without?

Maybe this sounds so grade schoolish…but deep down, don’t you want a friend like this?

Can you admit, you’re lonely like I am?
