The Blessing of Girls Night Out
Last Friday, I had a chance to hang out with fellow military spouses for a Girls Night Out. It was so much fun!
Every month, we try to get together and hangout (without the kids) and let our hair down. It feels so good to have the opportunity to just be me and not have to worry about a little toddler tagging along reciting ABCs and naming colors.
Girls Night Out started after our husbands deployed. We were overwhelmed Superwomen, missing our husbands, and desiring a time out from mommyhood. One of the girls in our group had a birthday coming up, so I decided to plan a surprise party for her at a local restaurant. We had a blast! I can’t remember the last time I had laughed like that. Girls Night Out was like medicine to our souls.
We as moms do ourselves a disservice when we don’t allow ourselves time to get away. It not only affects us, but everyone in the family ends up losing out in the long run.
If you are burning the candle at both ends, do yourself and your family a favor and take a break.
What is your favorite thing to do when you just want to get away?
