Grateful for Girlfriends

Where would we be without our girlfriends?

They make us laugh. They make us cry. They listen to our whining. They defend us without question.

And the best part?
They bring us joy.

In the picture at the left, I’m polka-ing with my friend Chere Bork at a National Speakers Association party. Our friend Susan Zimmerman is dancing right behind us.

I love this picture. It is filled with laughter from the belly.  Energy.  Friendship. We are just having such a great time.

When was the last time you left your complaining and whining in the car when you got together with a girlfriend? (I know. It is just so easy to dump on her…she is always so willing to listen!)

What if, during the next few weeks, you created time to laugh with those women who have seen you at your worst and your best? Call them. Meet them for lunch and create a “no whining” rule. Shop ‘til you drop. Roller skate. Watch Mary Tyler Moore re-runs. Polka.

This picture reminds me that it is really, really fun to laugh…with my Girlfriends.
I’m going to do more of that.

You are Extraordinarily Significant!
