Have you ever needed something so much but did not know it until it happened. That would be what happened last Thursday. I got together with a couple of women that I have just come to love. We laughed, and laughed and laughed. I actually laughed so hard I cried, it was awesome. We talked about everything and nothing and it was great. We ate dessert and just had a great time.
I have been praying for God to lead women into my life that I could hang out with and just be myself. I love that I don't feel judged, or like I'm under a microscope. I am able to just be Monica.
Here is a little bit about these people that I like the most...
Mrs D- She has an amazing laugh. We talk and talk and talk, and if you know me you know I love to talk. She is very loyal and loves her husband and kids like I love my kids and husband (I like that). She is a very positive person and she is very down to earth. Mrs D reached out to me when I really need a friend and someone to just talk to and she has been there ever since-did I mention that she loves to talk and loves to laugh :) She just make me smile every time I see her
Mrs N- If you don't know her you should. She is honest and open and a very caring person. I have know Mrs N for over a year but did not really get to know her until the past 6-8 months. She is a hoot. She make me laugh and is there when I need her not matter what. Mrs N is a devoted momma, and auntie to 8 children. She disciplines much like I do and I like that. She is very straight forward and tell me like it is- I need this in my life. Mrs N has come to be a very close friend and I just adore her.
So that's it. Girlfriend are the best. I have had a really hard time this year connecting with girlfriends. My very best friend Mrs J. moved last year and that has been very difficult for me. I miss her dearly and wish we lived closer. It takes me a while to open up to people (years generally). I don't have tons of close friends and that's totally ok with me, in fact, the way I like it. I am enjoying meeting and hanging out with the ones I have. God is so faithful to connect like hearted people.
I am so thankful for the girlfriends in my life I need them because after David runs out of his 30,000 words a day and I still have 50,000 to go----I need someone else to talk to :)
Aren't we cute :)
