Happy Tuesday Friends!
Last Friday evening a group of my friends gathered for Thanksgiving. We were missing several but we still had a very large group. Most of us were a ladies group at a church, we were the Teacup Ladies from Eastridge Park CM Church in Mesquite. A few have joined our group that weren't part of the original group. We see each other several times a year but as I recall this is just our second Friendsgiving.
What is a Teacup Lady you might be asking. When Lisa held our first meeting she collected matching pairs of teacups and saucers. Lisa had them wrapped and used them as centerpieces on the tables. At some point during the event we all unwrapped a teacup and saucer and whoever had a teacup and saucer that matched ours became our prayer partner. I remember that we moved and sat by whoever had our matching set. We were to keep our teacup set somewhere where we would be mindful to pray for the group.

We planned our Christmas gathering, a Favorite Things Party at Mandy's house. She's in pink and is sitting beside me in our group picture. I have known Mandy since she was probably eight years old. It's been so fun to stay so connected with her all these years.
Kellie filled us in on our retreat details. Our retreat will be in March and all the details are being worked out now. Kellie is a "master planner" and we basically just have to show up.
