But also it is a time we catch up, and compair notes on our ministries each one is doing.
I think women getting together, is a powerful thing.
As long as they are not talking about other's.That is mischief, and not nice.
We have fun, we have a laugh, we may even have a little cry over things....but we are interested in each other, and each one knows we can call on each other for help.
I have about 7 very close friends.(One for each day of the week) lol.
I feel very blessed.
I'm pretty anti social so I don't generally go out to lunch with other people - but I love nothing more than going out to lunch by myself, with a good book or a notepad and some study material and just enjoying some quiet time!
Yes, I have 2 older friends who are also retired, & we got out every 2nd month for lunch. There’s a LOT of Cheap Easts around Sydney! We always go somewhere different, but we always go to The Star (casino) for our Christmas lunch, even though I can’t eat nearly as much as I used too! I have another friend I go to lunch with once a month, and always in the Shire. Another friend & I take each other to breakfast on our morning walk, to celebrate our grand-daughters birthdays! Any excuse! And I also meet up with a primary school friend about 2 every 2nd month, but that involves a 2 hr train trip, each way, for me, to a lovely place called, Kiama, where they have about 40 cafes, & it’s near the sea.
Yes, fairly regularly. 2/3 of us, and occasionally 5/6, have coffee - not necessarily lunch - at least a couple of times a week and also do regular monthly dinner dates. It's a great way to catch up and keep socialising.
