Sew Dates

This week I had the joy of having two sew dates with friends and if you haven't every had one, then it's about time.  The first thing you will need is a friend who sews too, or has a common passion.  Knitting your thing,  then knit.   Love to photograph flowers, no better time... or just enjoy great coffee and a good laugh..perfect date.    Then you will need to pick a date on the calendar and stick to it.  It's so easy to cancel things that are just for ourselves.  It's amazing sometimes how everything and everyone in the world can start to take over everything we do. By taking care of self however, it allows you to do a better job of taking care of everyone and everything else.  Food is always a nice addition to a date.  You can start the date by having breakfast out or create a lunch together it really doesn't matter but sharing time over food feels all warm and fussy and who doesn't like that?  Have fun.. for heaven sakes, it doesn't really matter if you get anything done by the end of the time, it's the time that matters.  Time is that thing we never have enough of and are always behind but when spent with someone we care about, those are the times we remember.  Friends help us laugh and feel good.  They support us through good and bad times and help us feel connected.  After all, we are only human.  We need others.  We are very social creatures.  No one is meant to be alone so reach out and touch someone this week.  Take a chance and make a date.  I promise it will make you smile and feel all warm and fuzzy.
