At the change of each season, I get together with a group of 6 wise women for a potluck and catch up session. It is a great time of reflection, to celebrate successes and share challenges. We were brought together through a book that we shared and have been meeting for 9 years. We span decades, life situations, and 5 cities now — we have learned so much from each other and feel that we are a unit of sorts. We stay connected through e-mail, prayer, and those quarterly meetings. I am always renewed by the time together.
