Can I just say again how utterly lovely it is to be asked instead of being the asker?
An instagram friend tagged two of us in a post and asked if we wanted to have a coffee. I was a bit taken aback because I had no idea the 3 of us all worked in the same area.
Well, we made it happen, went for lunch instead and it was just lovely.
I said this to her then but I'm saying again that it's so darn nice to be asked.
Then I wrote briefly about when I met up with Jeanette for lunch this day.
Another friend dropped something off with me one day at work and we had a fat chat in the parking lot. I love those unexpected moments during the day that energise me so.
I also had supper at a restaurant with two other friends.
Last Saturday it was the Jozimeetup where I saw a lot of old friends. Of course you can't talk properly at bigger functions but it's better than nothing.
BUT the best thing that day was something Laura said as she made my speaker introduction: Marcia is one of the most intentional people I know.
That is such a compliment to me, and I treasure your words, Laura.
Yesterday I had such a great chat with a work friend. Wow, she is such a good listener, asked just enough questions and before I knew it, a half hour had passed and we'd had true, meaningful connection.
And then today I finally (I say finally because we've been trying to get together for months) had lunch with an old work friend. We both forgot how great it is when we're together (we used to have lunch together at the other company at least once a month) and we've resolved to set this thing up as a recurring meeting.
|he found me!|
What's happening in your life with regard to friendship?
PS I'm not shy to say that my spreadsheet helps me remember and schedule friend dates. The work friend asked me about the spreadsheet and I said I know I'm going into OCD territory but I need all the help I can get!
Does anyone else have a spreadsheet?
