This season I crave spiritual connection with others. There is nothing that fills my soul more than a day with women I love and trust completely. Time to reflect and look forward or just hold still, being exactly who and what we are in that moment. There is no amount of money in the world that can replace this day for me.
One friend, the same friend, opens her house each year and welcomes those that would like to join. Each of us brings a dish to share. It is that meal that is the most enjoyable and appreciated, not gourmet necessarily, but each dish done with love, to be shared.
The coffee is hot, the hugs are warm and it is just about the safest place my soul can be. I listen, I think, I care, I feel, sometimes I cry. I am me and us are we! That is the truest gift you can give and receive.
This season, take the time to share with a friend, smile more, laugh a harder, tell people who you are and listen to them. Be a friend, a trustworthy friend, that’s a real gift.
