I’ve gone on exactly two girlfriend dates since I moved here. Both were with this new friend and one of those dates was with an additional friend we share. Moving during a pandemic is hard, and making new friends during a pandemic is unfathomably hard.
I’m thankful for this sister, a fellow homeschooling mama-of-five. Her family also moved to NYC during a pandemic so we have much in common.
I have mad respect for this woman and envy her career! She’s a writer! As in, she gets paid for it! One day…
I have started multiple paragraphs but keep deleting them because the thoughts are just too much for paper… but I’ll briefly say that Jamie and her family have loved our family during one of the hardest seasons we’ve faced, a season I have’t written about here because the stuff I’m referring to is not my stuff to share. It affects me, definitely, but it is not my story. But let the record show that this friend and her family have been there and are still here. They are the real deal and I can only pray the Lord extends the time we are in the same place at the same time so that we can share our love of NYC and coffee in person many more times.
