I have been invited to spend time with a group of women who get together every Friday. The purpose is to spend time working on beading projects or other craft projects.
We had a wonderful lunch of a chicken soup with gnocchi and kale and veggies and a grilled ham, cheese and tomatoe sandwich.. yum! The soup matched the charger plate that it was served on... it made for a pretty picture.
It also is good for the soul to know that I am not the only one who does crazy things. Our hostess this week was serving lunch when her husband came into the kitchen. He opened the refrigerator and pulled out a spray bottle of windex and said what is this doing in the refrigerator? After much laughter I felt a peace in my soul. I may not have put windex in the fridge but I have done some pretty silly things and wondered if I am going batty... I think life is so busy these days that we are rarely right where we are... we are thinking about too much and not in the moment. It is a reminder to slow down and savor the moment. The next moment will be here and gone before we know it.
So slow down and really appreciate your family, your friends and your home. And find yourself some girlfriends to hang out with. We need each other!
