Everyone settled into their seats as our session began. She chose us for this group, a bushel of apples ripe for picking.
It was good to be with my Thursday "family". We skipped a week, but that was to fill our bellies with honey.
For a change we each spoke of our accomplishments. The room was at peace as we told great stories of how we handled our lives... proof that we grew over the last two weeks. We were confident this was a sign that maybe we wouldn't need the full two hours that day! After all, we were in a good place.
"This is all good, but look deeper," she said. The smiles faded from our faces as we delved into the very core of our beings. We peeled back our shiny, polished exteriors and examined ourselves...once more...because she asked us to...because we could without feeling the pain of being sliced open.
