2 nights away with friends. one of us tried to arrange a trip half way across the country last year, we settled for 2 hours away together this year.
it is incredible to have no younger bodies to keep track of, to take care of, but only to miss.
we talked to strangers, wandered, ate until we hurt, made friends with the hotel staff, and came home tired.
our bodies were cared for, we never went hungry and didn’t know thirst.
oh, blessed be these hours. making memories to sustain us through the change that is coming.
thank you for calling me friends, you women.
