Sharing a cup of coffee and conversation with the people in my life is one of my favorite, life-giving things to do – other than my sacred hour of quiet time I carve out each day. It’s been 20 days since I have been able to connect with friends or family in the way that fills me up. I always knew I needed that connection in my life, but give me 20 days without and I REALLY learned that. Apps like Marco Polo, FaceTime and Zoom have helped me so much. Getting to see their faces and hear their voices makes me feel connected again. I can’t wait until I can hug them all again and actually share a cup of coffee or wine with them. Until then, I am on Marco Polo to get some connection with the people who make me remember what it’s like to be intentionally connected with each other – because while I love alone time and quietness, sometimes you just need to be seen by a friend who can look you in the eye and just know how your doing – good or bad.
