We sat around and introduced ourselves and had to share one or two interesting facts about ourselves. As we each took our turn, it was very clear that I was surrounded by amazing women. I was so touched by their life experiences. I have so much to learn from them.
As I looked around, I couldn't help but think in many ways we are all like scraps of fabric. Some are bold, some are subtle and some are even a little tattered, but coming together with our varied life experiences and having a chance to serve one another is forming a beautiful quilt.
I am grateful to be a part of such an organization. I am glad that I am testing what it feels like to truly "Embrace" this opportunity to serve. It is already changing me. It feels nice to be a part of something good.
