For some reason, I associate this time of year with my mother's sewing club. Maybe they started up each year when the children returned to school.
My mother's sewing club met from her early married years and is probably still meeting if any members are still alive.
It was a time of chatting and of working on everything from cross stitch to mending, and I'm sure it was also a time for tea and coffee!
Sewing clubs, book clubs, Bible studies and the like can still play a vital role in helping us to maintain a sense of connection to the world.
I meet with a small group of women on a regular basis just to encourage each other in life's challenges.
Consider starting your own little group of friends, neighbors, or colleagues.
