Day 11 – 30 Days of Gratitude

I’m in a book group with 7 other women who are all smart and interesting and fun.  We formed our book group about 15 years ago, primarily from a group of  Moms in the same alternative elementary school program (public school). Over time we’ve added a few other members.  2 of us are teachers, 2 of us work for a city, 1 of us is a newspaper editor, 1 of us is retired, 1 of us is a business owner, 1 of us is a corporate drone, albeit a really smart and fun one (guess who??!!).   We are magnificent – truly.

We meet once a month to discuss a book bad girls book cluband given the likelihood that we’ve all read the book (not so likely) we call ourselves the Accidental Readers.  It’s also pretty rare that we have a full house but really – we all have lives and sometimes we travel and sometimes work sucks the life out of us and sometimes we have family obligations and you get the idea.

My kids refer to us as “Mom’s drinking group” but that just shows what they know – WE TALK ABOUT THE BOOK; for at least  10 minutes. At least.  Some books hold our conversational attention for much longer – they just have to be compelling enough.

I am deeply grateful for this group – for the camaraderie, for the way we treat each other, for the exchange of ideas, for the sharing of insights and for the measured but undeniable debauchery.  Thank you, ladies!

    What a fun post! You sure look like a “bad girls book club” in your pic. ha! Love the tone of the post and really love how your kids call it like it is, because don’t they always? Truth be told, I’m a little jealous. Never joined a book club because I can’t remember what I read, the minute I’m done. Sounds like I’d fit into yours. I do like my wine:)
