It had been two months since we had seen many of our friends from co-op. Months longer for some of our other friends. Friday was a blessed reunion when we were able to reunite with co-op friends, new and old, for a Christmas party.
We met up at the church of one of the co-op families for a potluck lunch and playtime with friends. The kids enjoyed “friend time” with co-op buddies, and I loved catching up with all the mommas who are some of my nearest and dearest friends. I don’t get nearly enough time with these ladies who are soul-sisters that feed my spirit and buoy me up. They have been my tribe of people for the last decade, walking beside us and supporting us through our greatest challenges.
It was wonderful to sit, and share, and catch up with each other’s lives.
After lunch we gathered the kids for their white elephant gift exchange…
Some walked away with junk and others lucked out, picking wisely, and left with treasures,
But regardless of what gifts were unwrapped, everyone was gifted with laughs and merry memories!
I love this gang of people!
