Every other Wednesday I get together with a group of women for tea. It is an exclusive - by invitation only - kind of party. It's amazing that this diverse group of women have so much in common. No one puts on airs. The PHD holder is just as important as the woman who works for Head Start. We come together and share our lives, our families,our failures and our victories. But most of all; We laugh. Not polite little giggles behind our cloth napkins. I am talking about a full blown belly laugh. The kind where it's just a matter of time before the tears show up. Laughter is music to the soul. It is healing to the body and freeing to the mind. It releases all the toxic negative emotions we hold inside and replaces them with positive healthy emotions. When is the last time you laughed?
Tonight a few of the ladies got together and began the process of creating Pineapple Quilts. We are following a design from this book. Since we are not experts ( yet we are committee chairs for our local Quilting Guild ) it should be interesting. I will keep you up to date on our progress.
