We recently had a Girl’s Night In, meaning lots of snacks, flowers and candles. And a stack of movies. Preferably movies with lots of dancing.
Getting together is so much more than just finding the comfy spot in piles of snugly blankets as the sun falls below the horizon and the dance moves on the screen beat along to a great rhythm. It’s just as much about the connection, about the conversations that happen between the movies, the moments where quiet nods of encouragement and really hearing the emotion that whispers through spoken words… and it means so much more than the bowls of chocolate brownie sunday with a side of strawberry shortcake we just tackled in the kitchen.
It’s the beauty of relationships. We all have different situations and issues, lives and schedules, some are married, some have kids… and yet we all share, and love, and understand. We all need sharing, and love, and understanding. When the tears fall or when the smiles spread, when the call is made or the need is there… we come together.
“Friendship is a treasured gift, and every time I talk with you I feel as if I’m getting richer and richer”
