I was feeling a bit nostalgic and thinking how blessed I was to have such amazing girlfriends. So I decided to look up what the word means. I picked out the following meanings:
Friend – A person with whom one has a bond of mutual affection, An ally
Girl – A young woman of a specified kind
And that’s exactly what my girls are to me , specific woman whom I share a bond with and who when the time calls for it are my allies’.
What would I do without them …..hmmm, maybe shop less…….. they are irreplaceable and totally lovable………and yes some can be ermmm irritating (yes I said it) naturally I have none of those but I have HEARD of them.
There are the supporters; always pushing you to follow your dreams (even when the last one didn’t quite pan out) , the motivators; who always know how to keep you uplifted on those crappy days that always crop up at work………hmmm #tapstemple&frowns # I wonder why ? the ones who listen and encourage …..even when you have bitched about this same topic/situation over & over again and of course the teachers who always know some useful tidbit you didn’t , like how to read reviews on amazon, and last but by no means least your partner in crime, the enabler who helps you justify buying that new pair of shoes that you absolutely Need (not)…….and for all you cynics shoes are therapeutic so don’t judge !.
We all share some common worldviews , yet are all unique in our own special ways which is what endears me to each of them. I take bits of each of them with me where ever I go. To all you special ladies ……..CHEERS !!! xox.
So we were having a very lively family devotions when the question was asked “how do you pray, do you pray big prayers or small ordinary prayers ?”. after all three of us commented and gave our examples of what we were each praying for, i exclaimed “we are all praying for different things” to which my darling son remarked “don’t worry about it mommy, God will do whats best for the family”.
Amazing……… that was my lesson for the night, a powerful reminder that God always does whats best for us, even when it seems he is not answering our prayers.
