One of the blogs I follow is http://www.wakeupandwrite.com.  This morning’s post was about 5 women getting together to share an evening and their thoughts by using aHearthstones.

From what I read each woman pulls a tablet from the bag and reflects on the word written on the tablet.

It seems like a delightful way to spend an evening with your women friends.  I am fortunate to have some very wonderful women friends and to have had some very meaningful conversations with them.

But, as crazy as it may seem, the older we get, the busier we are, and when we get together the conversation usually is about catching up with each other’s lives.  I really enjoy being included in these women’s lives and look forward to sharing with them what is happening in my life.  But I was struck by the thought that it would be so very nice to have the time to delve deeper into our relationships by spending an evening sharing thoughts and reflections.

Perhaps if I find out where to get at set of Hearthstones for myself, I will try to start a monthly date with my special group.  I am sure it would be meaningful for all of us.

Wishing you many meaningful conversations,


About Bernadette

I live in the small town of Haddonfield, NJ. I am at an age in my life when I seem to spend time thinking and musing about life. These musings are usually stimulated by my walks through Haddonfield, my reading of books and fellow bloggers, and my interaction with my group of fabulous family and friends.

Right now we are using the Hearthstones and it has been an inspiring practice.

    Maybe you could make your own hearthstones, cut hearts out of card stock and write an inspiring word on each: friendship, dawn, simplicity, springtime, prayer, fountain …
