I may have mentioned them before – but I wanted to make a formal introduction of a group of women that hold my heart.
This is my Thursday night – which I rigorously defend in my calendar.
This is my support network, my full-belly laughter, my work out crew, my spiritual walk.
These are women who challenge me to be a better person today than I was yesterday. To strive for transparency. Who show me that there is such a thing as grace and second chances. They are more than just friends – they are sisters.
They are also JUST PLAIN FUN. We laugh (a lot), we cry (sometimes). We often stray off topic – but that’s my call (or fault – depends on your point of view) as the “ring-leader”. And, did I mention that they are also gorgeous? Here, take a look:
Most of the crew: Me, Sarah, Chrissy, Melissa, Sarah, Nicole, Christy, Kelly
DSW is our group nickname – which has several meanings, depending on our mood.
Desperate Single Women (desperate for more of HIM)
Desirable Single Women
Desperately Seeking the Word
Devine Sassy Wildthings
Dozen Saucy Women
The possibilities are endless. I am so thankful for the blessing they are in my life. We pretty much came together by random circumstances. I only knew 3 of the dozen women prior to January/February. And computer/email glitches threw most of the rest of us together in a small-group search database. Although, between you, me and Jesus: I KNOW that this was not random!
Who do you have in your life as a support? Does anyone else have a regular get together with a group of women or a sport/hobby club? If so, what does it mean to you?
