Our lunch was winding down when the waiter came by to ask if we’d like another glass of wine. I was about to say no and ask for the bill, when my friend said, yes, absolutely.
I got excited thinking we were buckling in for an afternoon of fun.
But then I noticed how fidgety she had become.
She looked uncomfortable.
I quickly scanned the files in my brain for some kind of wrong I had done her. I could tell I was about to be confronted and it would be awkward because I had no recollection of any hurts I had inflicted.
Tears filled her eyes.
My heart sunk.
I was recently asked to join the contributor team at A Deeper Family. I was hugely honored and totally flabbergasted. And then I was filled with trepidation…I’ve complained long and hard that there isn’t enough on the blogosphere dedicated to the single life. And now it’s time to put up or shut up.
Please join me at A Deeper Family…even if you’re not single. I’m guessing that you know and love someone who is and I hope my words give you a little better understanding of where we single folk are coming from.
