Have you taken some lately?
Sometimes, near the end of confession with my awesome pastor, he will ask if I’ve been able to get out with my friends. “This is so important, you know,” he will tell me. “Women have different social needs than men. You need to get out and get together with the girls!”
Well then. Tomorrow at confession I can tell him I did.
“How long do you think you’ll be gone?” my husband asked when he got home from work last night. Taking the car keys from his outstretched hand, I replied, “Oh, I don’t know. About an hour and a half?”
Three hours later, I returned….and it was good, very good.
I did not even mind sitting quietly when the conversation turned to knitting.
Thank you, Grace, and thank you, Sarah, for taking the time to get together! You knew I would post about it when I pulled out the camera…but the way I see it, shameless blogging opportunity notwithstanding, if we can inspire more moms to get out and get together…
Then it will have been worth it.
