Have you ever connected with someone on such a deep level that it scared you? Catching you by complete surprise, never expecting you two to hit it off like you did, and yet … here you are!
You met as complete strangers, unsure if you’d have anything in common or would just have to fake it til you made it. Work called, and you two had a job to do. Your coworker soon gets a glimpse of the weirdo that you are, but something amazing happens. They don’t run away. They don’t even laugh that hard at you. Much to your surprise, they allow you to see their inner weirdo, too. And immediately … you connect!
Two weirdos in the workplace!
If you think about it, you spend the majority of your time at work. Eight to ten hours a day are spent talking to or coordinating things with your coworker. You work together as a team. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you went deeper than just coworkers and became friends as well?
AND that, dear reader, has happened to me.
I’m so blessed to be surrounded by people who genuinely support me and care for me. They don’t just ask flippantly, “How are you?” They honestly CARE!
I’ve seen their care and concern just recently, and they’ve prayed for me and over me. To know that you mean something to your coworkers, there is no greater feeling. You aren’t just warming a seat, producing items like a robot. No, you actually matter. And in moments like that, you thank God for such a sweet connection.
