I developed the concept in February of 2011 while I was in the throes of multiple life-altering events. I was stressed out to say the least! I knew I needed a local group of like-minded women that could not only empathize with me, but encourage me as well; a group of women that could hug me and hold my hand. During my individual conversations with girlfriends, I learned I wasn’t alone and while the situations may not have been identical, the emotions were.
The purpose of Whine & Cheese is not meant to be a pity party. I believe that when you are faced with moments of distress, you should immediately begin to count your blessings. Life’s tests can lead to power and perseverance. So for every complaint (whine) that is shared, a reason to smile (cheese) should always follow. In this way, we can remind ourselves to look on the bright side and be grateful in any situation.
On this site, you will find detailed information regarding this network, how to join, and links to online resources meant to inspire and empower you. My prayer is that your experience as a member of Whine & Cheese will be life changing, long lasting, and rewarding.
Always remember: For every whine, there is a cheese!
