I told you that one of my goals for 2010 is to deepen my connections with other women by having them over to my home two Fridays a month for coffee and conversation. Well, it all began last Friday!
I started by sending out an email invitation entitled "Friendship Fridays" to other mothers in my small group and church. I invited them to come to my home the 2nd and 4th Fridays of each month from 9:30-11:30am and to bring their own mug for coffee, and I would provide muffins... and bring your kids too and whatever they need for a snack/drink/entertainment! (Remember, this is a women's time not a playgroup!)
For two hours we sat around and talked about life, school, kids...whatever topic came up. Nothing deep. Just time to be together and connect. Lovely, really.
And little by little I hope that our times together birth an intimacy and closeness and community that we all really need. For women really do need other women.
What do you do to connect with other women regularly?
