Mama Jess had sent us a “welcome” email, complete with a full bio and beautiful pictures of herself. I think it was supposed to make us feel more comfortable the first time we met, but really it made me more nervous. I had never been in a small group, and it took me weeks {ok, more like years} to work up the courage to sign up. Katie, Kay, Emily and I all arrived at Mama Jess’ studio apartment on Lake Union, not knowing what we were about to get ourselves into.CG Pyramid

We went around the circle, introducing ourselves and sharing a bit about our background. What Jess really wanted to know, and the question she asked everyone, was, “do you have a boyfriend?” Except me, she didn’t ask me. Which made it really awkward when it came to prayer request time, and I had to start off with “well, I just broke up with my boyfriend…”

I had spent all afternoon in bed, crying over my broken heart, and the last thing I wanted to do was put on my happy face to meet new people. But the truth is, it was perfect timing and the best thing I could have done.

Even though I had made initial judgments…

“oh, she’s in a sorority, we will have nothing in common…”

”she likes to scrapbook! Yay, we will be friends!”

…those girls came to be some of my closest friends. We did life together. Earlier this year, I wrote more about our time together over on Primitive Roads- you can read that here.
