For My Friends

Any woman who sews or knits or weaves blends colors in a tapestry or creates a patchwork quilt knows by the feel that a single thread is weak but the weaving the blending the intertwining with many others makes it strong.

Any woman alone without friends to sustain her to nurture and support to hold with loving arms like a single thread is weak. But the weaving the loving the nurturing of others the networks of friendship makes her strong.

I read this poem in the Mary Janes Idea Book - Cookbook - Lifebook for the farmgirl in all of us this week. It made me think of all my blog friends & how much you all mean to me.

Blessings Til next Time!

  1. This is a wonderful post.

    Most of my grandmother's generation went to "Happy Homemakers" clubs but then my mother's generation was too liberated. Now we are beginning to understand that being liberated means getting to do what you want, not what society says is your role. My generation now has many get togethers that revolved around women, hearth and home. I think we are coming back full circle.
