These are my sisters in Christ (and 6 are missing). We're journeying through life together. My heart aches that I can't see them tonight. We meet twice a month. I am completely overwhelmed today, but talked to 2 of my sisters and felt God's balm of love and peace flood over me. I needed perspective. I needed wisdom. I needed a calm voice. I needed unconditional love. I got all that and a smile after hanging up the phone. Mmm. Now I look at my kids and smile, hug them, read quietly to them, grateful to make dinner. All that because my friends listened.
