An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place, or circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle, but will never break. ~ Chinese Proverb
These are some of the lovely, intelligent women in my book club (two others were absent when this photo was taken).
The inspiration for our book club name is based on a wonderful children’s book The Red Thread written by, Grace Lin. The story is based on an ancient Chinese belief that an invisible, unbreakable red thread connects those who are destined to be together. The story is about adoption, but we thought it would be a great name for our little group.
We have quite diverse backgrounds ~ a former actress, an artist, teachers, and a realtor to name a few.
We hail from New York, Massachusetts, Georgia, Oklahoma, California, Alabama, and both Virginias.
We all love to read which is why we were attracted to each other in the first place.
We actually talk about the book that was chosen that month. Several of these books have caused us to step completely out of our comfort zone. (Which is a good thing.)
We have shared many things together over the past few years ~ deaths, births, joys and sorrows, much laughter and even a few tears (some of sorrow, but mostly laughter ~these gals are hilarious!)
This is a treasured time in our lives. We all know that it will end one day, but for now we anticipate and enjoy this monthly meeting. I am so very thankful that one of my red threads connected me with these absolutely wonderful women.
