When you wonder why everyone else seems to have friends

The thing about women is that we always assume the girl next door, the women across the aisle, the mom in the car pool lane, your husband’s best friend’s wife, your cousin, great aunt or the stranger in the dressing room next to you at the mall has it figured out. Whether “it’s” how to balance motherhood with, well, anything else really. Or how to manage her temper or style her hair or stock her fridge or connect with her husband or make new friends.

We’re always certain we’re the only one who feels awkward or incompetent or left out or frumpy or you-name-it.

For nearly two years after we moved to Virginia I assumed that all the other women at church knew each other.

Was I ever wrong. I’m sharing the story over on (in)courage today. Click here to join me, won’t you?

    Hey Lisa Jo,

    Everytime I get an email saying you have a new post I rush on over to read it. It’s like you speak truth in my heart and I always come away feeling encouraged. It’s like sipping hot chocolate with a friend, and I know I can come here at any time (middle of the night when my baby won’t sleep for example!) and leave feeling like a breath of fresh airs been blown into my life.

    Thanks for being so lovely

    Nice post. I study something tougher on totally different blogs everyday. It should all the time be stimulating to read content from other writers and follow a bit of something from their store. I�d choose to use some with the content on my blog whether you don�t mind. Natually I�ll offer you a link on your net blog. Thanks for sharing.

    The next time I learn a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I imply, I do know it was my option to learn, however I actually thought youd have one thing interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you may repair in the event you werent too busy searching for attention.

    The subsequent time I learn a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this one. I imply, I do know it was my option to learn, however I truly thought youd have one thing fascinating to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about one thing that you possibly can repair for those who werent too busy searching for attention.

    After I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any way you possibly can remove me from that service? Thanks!

    Does your blog have a contact page? I’m having a tough time locating it
    but, I’d like to send you an e-mail. I’ve got some ideas for your blog you
    might be interested in hearing. Either way, great website and I look forward to seeing it grow over time.
