a balm

Place: My Office

Poison: Flat white

Favourite Things: Easter Eggs (i know I shouldnt but there in reception!)


We are doing much research on Jane Austen at the moment for our next women’s event and this quote struck me!

Friendship is certainly the finest balm for the pangs of disappointed love…Jane Austen (Northanger Abbey)

I have this amazing group of friends all over the world, that I would most certainly call my ‘sisterhood!’…With each of them moving into the lives that they have been called to live, I must be more intentional with the effort and time it takes to stay connected in their worlds.

What I have experienced through these relationships is a fine balm that has provided the healing layer from the stings, burns and cuts that life brings.

I do not want to live a sheltered experience where I never venture out from the confines of my safety zone. Therefore it is imperative that I have people who love me unreservedly to speak perspective and truth in those times of emergency.

So thanks to those balms of love out there, you know who you are…

Life without you would be so completely boring!
