And they "Get" you. People who are, perhaps, several states, or possibly countries, away "Get" you. And that's a good feeling.
This new life of mine, this new goatie, farm girl, back to the earth life suits me. As do the sisters who follow my path, always willing to lend a hand, even if only verbally.
Last evening I had the extreme pleasure of meeting up with my very first Goat Sister, Sandy, as she was in the area doing research on her new life project! We hit it off immediately and it was as if I were catching up with an old friend not meeting a new one. We had a lovely dinner and shared the bits and pieces, both good and bad, of our lives. And yeah, she "Gets" me.
And as if getting to meet weren't enough, Sandy came bearing gifts! And SUCH gifts!
Enough vintage fabric to last through a 1000 Capra Projects! And lace! The old and fragile kind! The kind that makes me want to sew forever! And I can't wait to get started!
Since Sandy is in town for the week we have plans to meet at the lake on Thursday so I can bring Darla to meet her. I have a feeling we're going to have a fun time! And yes, we'll post pics! :)
So, this is me sending a wee thanks to the Universe for reminding me that there is a Sisterhood and it is good. And hugs to all my Goat & Gypsy Sisters who I haven't had the pleasure of meeting....yet!
(You know who you are!) :)
And remember, never underestimate the power of being got!
