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!
