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 :)
