the sound of rushing water soothed as we approached the cabin in the pitch black of night, only our headlights to guide the way.
finally inside, fireplace blazing, pj's on, games commence and laughter emerges.
laughter is healing and breaks down walls.
bonds are built through laughter.
laughter joins hearts and minds, overshadowing insecurities that lurk in the darkness.
knowing each other more deeply through shared hugs and conversation.
receiving them whole, in love, no judgement or criticism.
a safe place to be a mom, a wife, a woman.
