Knitting Night

Knitting Night was particularly fun tonight.  There were only three of us, so instead of knitting we just sat down and had a home cooked dinner that we all contributed to.  The three of us tonight are all of the same faith, and have attended the same church for some time. We really missed the rest of our friends who are really awesome women. However, we got to treasure the presence of those that we were there tonight and had a lovely dinner together.

One of the topics that came up was the importance and value of our friendship.  We each talked about how it is nice that we share the common values of loyalty, compassion, honesty, etc.  One friend said that she values how she can tell us as her friends something really personal and not have to ask anyone not to repeat it.  She just knows that it stays within.  We have really forged a bond within our group.  I just appreciate my friends so much.  

We did not get to knit tonight, but it was such a joy to just be peaceful and talk.  We span forty years between all of us so our topics of conversation are always interesting.  I love the perspective that each of us brings.  We have all been friends for years and I know that we always will be friends.  There is truly something comforting in all of that.
