We started as a book club and became a group of moms going through child-rearing, jobs, teenage issues, and more. Decades later, there is more dancing and talking than book club activities but we always have fun together.
These were the people with whom I confided that my son, Charles, was doing drugs, eventually addicted to drugs, and whom I called right after he killed himself. To say we’ve been through a lot together would not really come close to the love and support I find with these ladies.

This photo made me smile because I am fortunate enough to have a similar group of wonderful women in my life! Several groups actually but your group most reminds me of my “knitting girls”. I don’t even remember if we started as a knitting group (I have never been a knitter!) or random crafting group but 30 years ago there were over 25 neighborhood women floating in and out of the weekly meet up. People moved, people died, group dynamics changed and life moved on. For the past 10 or so years we have become a steady group of 5 and that’s been just perfect! Like your group we have also been through just about everything life can throw at us and I am very grateful for my “knitting girls”.
That’s so funny, Sandra. The knitting group that doesn’t knit like my book club that doesn’t read a chosen book. But they do read. We just don’t discuss any books.
