I got to escape for a night away with a group of infertility sisters on Saturday. This is an amazing and strong group of ladies, that I am so blessed to have gotten to know. I've actually met (in person) most of them only one other time, a year ago. Two of the gals I met for the very first time this weekend. However, I've been a part of their Oregon based Facebook group for several years now. The majority of the group all met years ago through RESOLVE, long before I was ever introduced to them.
One of the gals has a family vacation house on the coast, that she grew up going to as a child. She invited us all for a moms night away, and it was wonderful! It's always nice to connect with other moms, without kids in tow every once in awhile! I don't get that opportunity very often, or hardly ever!
It's really quite an intimidating group of ladies. There are two doctors, two lawyers (and I'm talking big time lawyers. One of them is a defense attorney and worked a murder trial for Pete's sake!), a veterinarian, and a retired police officer (she stepped away when she had her twins). One gal is a fire investigator that is currently being offered a fire chief position. There's also a dietician and a few teachers. As I said, it's quite the line up of intimidating, strong ladies! But they are all so kind, with big hearts, and real life problems, just like the everyone else.
The weekend was just what I needed, to be able to take a deep breath and tackle motherhood and grab life by the horns.
