I was stunned to find just one member of my table waiting for the meeting to begin. Where were the other ladies? The two of us looked at each other puzzled and felt relief that we had one another and were not alone!
We talked about the movie FROZEN, our children, home renovations and her business. While the company of the others was missed, being an introvert of sorts, this is what suited me. My earlier frustrations fell by the wayside and I became at ease.
We were joined by another member moments later. We took in the message of our speaker and were able to freely disclose without judgement during the discussion portion of the meeting. The honesty and vulnerability is what I found to be nourishing... this is what I crave as a mother, woman and human being.
