Hey, everybody. #StayConnected. Even if you’re video chatting with your women’s pastor and your husband walks in the room post-shower with only a towel wrapped around his waist, (Once he realized what was happening he quickly dropped to the floor on his knees and started crawling.) 🙈 Thankfully Lorie has a good sense of humor.
Anyhow, I’ve had a few people reach out to me and ask me to touch on loneliness during the quarantine. I’ll simply share what’s worked well for me and a few creative ideas from others.
Zoom, Zoom, Zoom, ya’ll! The group of ladies in this blog post picture has my heart, oh my goodness. Each time we talk or text I’m reminded I’m not alone in what I’m feeling or struggling with.
Take a cue from my friend Megan, who gets carry-out with her family and then meets in a parking lot to eat “together.”
A friend’s high school daughter meets up with her friends at the school and they all sit on the hoods of their cars and talk. And probably flirt.
Yes to socially distant walks! 🙌🏼
My neighborhood has an occasional socially-distant drink in someone’s front yard.
Video chatting while playing a board game is another fun idea I heard about.
Feeling connected to each other is a basic human need. Get your necessary dose of it in one way shape or form, And BTW, your kiddos need it too.😉
