Yesterday, to celebrate mothers, there was an event organized by the ladies for the ladies in the community. There were 350 women in all and it was a grand event in every sense. Women dress for other women is so true. There was a sense of “this is just us ladies and we can let our hair down” atmosphere, though the cynic in me recognised that there would be gossip and judgements later. I also realised that I have changed so much. I used to be uncomfortable among only ladies before. I never liked the topics of discussion. But now, I can hold my own conversation without zoning out!
It was a fun evening with dinner, drinks and dancing. I guess after coming to this country, I never had an evening out with friends and no husband and kid. Its May and we don’t know what life has in store for us in the coming few months, but once again we have finally made friends and are getting comfortable in the community.
