May 30--Favorites

Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.  --Marcel Proust

    There is a group of women in my life who began monthly get-togethers back in 1999. The group has expanded and changed some members over time to reach its current number of 23 Sisters. Ages range from 30s to 90s. We take turns organizing a dining venue or activity each month. Well, Covid stopped that in a big way. One of our annual events prior to the pandemic was the May porch party at the country home of one of our members. What a treat it was this past Thursday, after a three-year break, to get back to the porch! Lots of hugs, catching up, good food and drink--simple joy at being back together in this familiar and loved place! In support of all this happiness, three days of huge rain and strong winds cleared off, and we had a lovely, warm, calm evening to enjoy our outdoor time together. 
    Grateful for my Sisters,
