This morning, I am thankful for my friends, even though they kept me up till past twelve last night laughing. I meet with a group of ladies from my church in the evening once a month. We bring food and talk. I am not positive how the group was organized or why I was even included in the first place, but these ladies have turned out to be one of the greatest blessings in my life and to my marriage and children. Do you know what it is like to sit in a room with several intelligent, funny, Godly women who respect and adore their husbands and who enjoy being a mother to their children? I can't even begin to estimate the value of what these ladies teach me by being real in front of me. Many of the things they say I just have to put away in my heart. Most of them have a lot more children than I do. And, I am also the youngest, so I benefit from their experience. As I was driving home last night, I was thinking of two verses and I had these ladies in mind. I glean from their wisdom and I am sure the home I am building is stronger because of their examples to me.
He who walks with the wise grows wise, but a companion of fools suffers harm. Proverbs 13:20
A wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands the foolish one tears it down. Proverbs 14:1
