Well hello all my girlie girls...Gosh, again, times a flyin' by, and I just can't keep up !! I know you are all soo busy as well, soo you can understand !! I wanted to share with you what I did this past week-end.. It was soo wonderfully, surprisingly very FUN !!! My friend Bonnie, holding her puppy (baby)..hehehe..had a get together of all us girlies that hung out in jr.high school, soo I haven't seen these friends ,except her, for over 30yrs.. WHAT ?! I can hardly type that without wondering if this could really be true !! Noway !! I was kinda apprehensive about going, cuz, you know, all the different girlie personalities and all !! I didn't want to sit around and just talk and listen to everyones "glorified stories" I know this sounds terrible !! But, you know girls and the drama !! It was back then too !! BUT, I was sooo pleasantly surprised !! There was none !!
We all laughed and cracked up all night long.. My tummy even hurt when I left !! And, it's soo funny to hear what girlies remember !! I can't believe all the stories !! And, we actually laughed about all the boyfriends and that was hysterical !! We all liked the same boys, and just shared their affections, and we learned they tell stories too !! hahaha.. Darn boys !! I think that's why the girlies still fight.. over boys !! hahaha.. the stories ..oh my gosh !!
And then, things turned somewhat melancholy.. We all shared about our husbands, our children,and little bumps in the road for all of us !! Some hills compared to others.. And, then, to know how many of us are helping or caring for elderly parents .. and just making the best of our middle-aged years !! WHAT !! I kept saying I wasn't middle-aged YET !!! They would laugh, and say what are you ?! Ooohhh girlies, I'm young, nothings changed !! Plus, I still have another year to be middle-aged..RIGHT ?! And then, I came home and got ready for bed, and really looked in the mirror..okay..okay.. I AM Middle-aged !! Just hadn't realized it as of yet !! booohoooo...
So all in all, I have to say, I came home with a warm fuzzy heart, and a big tickle in it as well !! I came to realize that evening, everyone is growing up and old together and at the same time.. We all go through things, and hold onto uneasy feelings.. But, than we get to a certain age, and that's what we all learned from, and because of these growing up days, that's who we have grown up to be.. WOW !! We all loved to see each other, and enjoyed everyones company more than I can share with you !!! It was soo special and I have to say I learned alot.. yep, even in my middle-age I'm still learning..to let go of the past, don't judge, and always be open minded towards others.. I have to say, I haven't giggled like that since, well over 30 yrs.. ago.you know what I mean.. like a child..yet at the tender age of 13 and 14 I thought I knew everything !!! Ooohh... what the last 30 yrs. has brought.. hubby, children,new friends,yep, that I actually get to hand pick.. At that age we're all thrown together.. you know what I mean !! I have a new tenderness for friends.. LoVe your friends, be a friend, and listen to your friends.. not only with our ears, BUT, our hearts..If you need to forgive.. ladies forgive..if you need to let go..let go.. life is short, and good friends are few !! Let's cherish our friends, and thank the good Lord for blessing us soo wonderfully.. for friends you say..yes friends.. life is soo short..
gosh, didn't mean to ramble on, but, I feel well..kinda like I'm getting older !! Some things really don't matter at the end of the race.. God is good, and oohh soo faithful !!
Speaking of friends, I LoVe all my bloggy friends honest I DO !!
Big big hugs
