You sit around a table together one a week for 8 plus months and something happens. For the whole school term of Dream Realization School, these ladies were my table mates but they quickly became so much more than that as we shared and bared our hearts and souls. We laughed together, we cried together, we shared, we cared, we prayed. What a gift!
Last night we had a reunion-- one month+ after graduation... we were missing a few ladies but wow, what a couple of hours we had! Rich in conversation, insights, encouragement and love.
Women need women. That heart connection that just doesn't happen with our spouse no matter how deep the love and how rich the understanding between us. Men love us but they don't always "get: us. And that's okay... because I have my gal-pals, my dream girls!
Each one of us unique and special. Each with our own baggage (accessorized, of course) and our own way of doing things. Some of us as different as night and day, and ranging in age and experience. We all are in different stages of our lives.... retirement, motherhood, wedding preparations, careers, mid-life what next's (refuse to call it crisis) it's all wonderful.
Each one of these ladies makes me feel special to be called their friend. Who know when we first met that we'd go to this level of friendship, trust, transparency. Oh, yah, God did. And so he gifted us with each other.
