Longing

Yesterday, Raven joined me for Happy Hour time. She’s too young to drink but she enjoys the occasional outing, especially if there’s food involved. We are both foodies! 

We went to a tapas bar not far from our house – just us, as mom didn’t want to go – got a pint of coke and 3 dishes each. We agreed to drop our phones so we could talk and have a good time together. It’s not that hard as we love each other’s company anyway. 

We did talk a lot, even about dating and the types we like/dislike. It was fun. After a while, I noticed her attention kept on drifting to a large group behind us. I couldn’t see them but I could definitely hear them. 

They were loud and carefree; they were talking and laughing without a care in the world.

I was flooded by a sense of longing: longing to have a group like that, to go out for a last minute Friday happy hour and simply have fun; longing to have someone to hold my hand and share a smile, knowing we are together but still love being with friends.

I miss that so much. I am working on rebuilding my friendships. I am aware that takes time and I’m not giving up. 

I had a wonderful weekend with my Wattpad author friends but they don’t happen enough. How I wish we all lived closer.

  1. I have the exact same desire as you. I’d love to have a group of friend I can hang out with, but after this week’s experience, I am definitely not feeling optimistic! I absolutely love that you and Raven go out like this! ❤️

      She’s a fab friend but she’s too young to really go out. However, this bonding time is extremely important to us. We take full advantage of it.
      I hope you find your group. You have to put yourself out there, which is not easy.

  2. I have often longed for a group like that, but have never really had one. Sometimes I end up at events with a large group, but feel like it isn’t really my group. I’m not outgoing enough to maintain that. Hugs.

      Whenever I seem to get a group going, I end up moving away. This time I started one where we already all live in different places. Oh well… Hugs to you too!
