Perspective

Do you ever have days where you feel you've been run over or beat up? That was how I felt when I posted last. I had plans that night to watch a movie with 3 other women. We were going to watch I (heart) Huckabees together over some wine and snacks. So much intensity happened all day with regard to my family, by the time our girls night came I wasn't in good shape and wanted to cancel.

I also did not want to cancel as I was looking forward to spending time with some new friends. So, I went...

Driving there I was trying to decide how to answer the question, "how are you" would I say not good and leave it, would I say okay and leave it, or would I say not good and if you want to know why I will try to make it short...

The latter happened, and we talked and talked...

I love women. Many women I know have such a natural gift to listen with empathy, to think and ask questions that help you process, to offer compassion and wisdom.

I will say it again, I am wealthy, probably one of the richest women I know, not monetarily but with friendships...I think at the end of the day, when I go from this life to what is beyond, the friendships and relationships made here are what will qualify as richness.

thank you Jesus for the multitude of relationships you have brought into my life, too many to mention, but you know and I know and I am blessed...

Rose, I'm so glad you decided to go. I agree that women have this incredible ability to talk things out and listen to each other. I would be lost without my women friends. I have been in "dysfunctional family hell" this week too. I'll be praying for you. God is so good. He introduced me to worship dancing on my birthday a few weeks ago so I'm feeling so close to my Heavenly Father!!!!

So glad you chose the latter. I'm actually really impressed by that because I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have. Maybe I will learn to do that more as I become rich with your kind of currency...
