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 sneeze...lol  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!!
