I really don’t get enough “girl time”. Between my work, family, and the list goes on, the time I get to spend with my wide variety of girlfriends is slim. Yesterday, on a spring like day, I went to a tea. The setting was one of my friend’s gorgeous homes and will be one of my features when I can convince her. The scene included her vintage china that belonged to a family member partnered with a variety of teas and treats. This event was hosted by three creative souls who knew that women gathering is a powerful scene.
I didn’t know everyone, but I was intrigued by meeting those that I had heard so much about. It is amazing how a group of women can simply sit, sip tea, eat treats and be present. No distractions. Most of these women I have known a while. We are walking a journey together like no other. This is a genuine support system that soothes our everyday struggles, laughs at life’s hiccups, all without judgement.
Because I live in a house full of men, being girly has escaped my thoughts, so dressing up, sipping from a tea cup with a story, and munching on delicious treats was ideal. I need feminine energy in my life. I need that connection and the understanding that only women can provide to each other.
My tribe includes a variety of women. Some I have known all my life while others have entered with God’s timing in mind. They inspire me and love me in spite of my flaws. It was a nice reminder yesterday that my girlfriends feed my soul and allow me to be myself, and that is a gift.
