Comforting things

Fall weekend

What a beautiful fall weekend to spend some time with great friends!
Our supper/brunch/girls' night club got together on a beautiful, sunny Sunday morning for brunch.  There are WAY more kids energy than when we began 6ish years ago,  but I love it.  I love these ladies, their husbands and their kids and feel very fortunate to be able to call them friends.
I really needed yesterday's visit to get me back into the "supermomma" mind frame.  I've been feeling pretty down for the past couple of days, I think that the emotional exhaustion from our failed Thursday treatment caught up with me.  Being with these ladies makes me feel good about myself.  They are so very comforting, reassuring and uplifting.  We have common values and similar parenting styles so its hard not to feed off of each other.
I think it is so important that we have people in our life like that:  people who can bring us up, without even knowing it, when we're feeling down.
