Then today, I ran into a new friend in the produce section of my local grocery store. We stood there and talked for over an hour, both with lists in our heads and I am sure, a million other things to do. We just stopped and spoke to each other. It reminded me of what makes me tick. There has been a common thread in what God has put before me and the passion He placed in my heart... women. Sometimes I forget how much I need other women in my life.
My love language is quality time. I feel most loved when people give me their valuable, "can't ever get it back", time. I am so thankful for her attention and laughter today. I really needed it. She may never know how that unplanned hour (during which, she did not look for a clock or an excuse to get going) fed my soul. I'm like a Timex. I can take a lickin' and keep on tickin' but without a little help to keep it wound, I'll just slowly get run down and become another useless face.
