G & G Girlfriends & Give Away

I was listening to a radio program about capturing your life.  Everyday is presented with a list of must do, need to finish and how am I going to get this done???  Who pays the price for this?  You! and ultimately your girlfriends.  We can't ignore the spouse.  We can't ignore the kids.  And, we can't ignore the dog without immediate repercussions ..but we can cut out the girlfriend time.   What you discover when you do this is, loneliness.   Girlfriends provide a mirror into your own heart, they are women who have experienced life just like you have...sure, there are different challenges but basically they are the ones who get it when you laugh about aging and say it is hard to laugh and not pee!!!  The other night I was telling HH about how my sis and I were laughing so hard about what the pits it was to have a cough when you have a 50+ year old bladder.  He looked at me with a quizzical look...guess guys don't pee when they  Anyhoo the program went on to say girlfriend time must be scheduled and is just as important as any other relationship in your life...and so, a handful of us met at Barnes and Noble for some coffee, catching up and stitching...and you know what...the program was right on...I felt great the rest of the day!!

Lori, Dale, Robin and Nancy

  1. My kidneys are about the only thing that work right, lol.
    I stopped my Doxy and of course I start coughing, Bill has it and I knew I couldn't escape it, errr.


  2. lol Oh so true about the coughing "side effect".

  3. good for you! hate the coughing too!

  4. Watch that cough. Girl time is a must.

  5. HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY! the coughing "issue" even happens in our 40's. Ugh!

  6. Every time I start to complain about getting old, I have to remind myself that at least I AM getting old...and as long as I'm on the right side of the grass, I'm doing fine. Sure is hard adjusting to the "new" body, though!
