The Women

This week I was invited to attend a women’s brunch. I really, really dislike women’s brunches. I really, really dislike women’s events of any kind. But because I received a personal invitation, I decided that it would be rude not to go. So I went.

And I had a blast!

Six of us women sat outside at a lovely patio cafe for three hours and there was no agenda except to get to know each other.

I didn’t want to leave.

I tried to think of the last time I’d enjoyed a group of ladies like that and I honestly couldn’t remember. I realized then how starved I had been for Christian female companionship. I wanted to weep. Just because I was happy.

Here were some wonderful women I hardly knew and yet they accepted me, wanted to know me, and shared their hearts with me. I didn’t know people like that still existed.

All I can do is thank God for answering a years-long prayer of mine.

    I would be so nervous if I ever got invited to a women’s brunch. But if I ever did, I’m sure I’d have a great time. :o)
