“The highest tribute to the dead is not grief but gratitude.”
― Thornton Wilder, born on this date 1897
The Joy of Text book club has been meeting in Vermont for 20 years, and I was lucky to Skype with them about SATURDAY NIGHT WIDOWS last night. We talked about how my friends and theirs see each other through crises and mileposts, all while sharing adventures, in their case, often through books.
But so much more. Driving a friend to cancer treatments, showing up to tend the garden of another friend when her son was in the hospital. The ladies of The Joy of Text celebrate the awe-inspiring joy of friendship, too.
