Circle of Friends


I am realizing the older that I get the true value of friendship. Each friendship is so different and requires different things. I believe we need all of these friends because we all have so many different needs in our lives. There are friends that come into our lives for a season in which we need them (man God does provide doesn't He?) and then disappear, never to be heard from or seen again. But those friends are never forgotten. I also have the occasional friend. This is the friend that I see at weddings, showers and funerals. I also have my cyber friends. I know I will never meet this friend face-to-face but some of these friends I know better than people I see everyday. We have our "professional" friends. These are the people we work with and perhaps are in civic clubs with. They can help us problem solve at work and sympathy with professional issues. My husband and I have couple friends. I also have "friends of a friend" friends. These are people I have met thru other friends. I may never know them well but none the less we are friends. But then there are my "girlfriends". These are the gals that I love so much and enjoy being around. I can share my deepest secrets and not fear being judged. These are the friends that I can count on when the cards are down or will be there for me when things are good. Each of these girl friends are different and serve a different purpose within that circle but each quality they bring with them makes each of them equally important. One is patient and caring while another is brutally honest. These ladies are such an important part of my life and I feel their importance each day.
I think it is essential that everyone has friends in their lives, even though that puts you out there to be hurt or betrayed. We will all come to the realization that some people we thought were our friends are not, sometimes these people are even toxic to us. But the joys we receive from our friends can never be measured and far out weigh the pain. We just got to remember that it’s the growth of the quality of friendship and those memorable moments that we share that hold so closely to our hearts.

Summer Television Shows!!

I have been so excited about some the new shows on TV this summer along with returning shows like The Closer. Has that show not been fabulous this year? I love Kyra Sedgwick. She is fantastic as Brenda. Don't you just think it is great when she says "Thank you so much" to everything. True Southern Manners. The episode where Kitty went to heaven had me in tears! Carrying around Kitty's ashes in her pocketbook. And what do you all think about Lt. Provenza with his new love interest? He sure is dressing really snappy this season.
The best new show of the season I think is Drop Dead Diva. Did anyone catch that this week? Fantastic. Read more about it here - http://www.grrltv.com/drop-dead-diva-new-lifetime-summer-series/ - This show is going to be a hit. The star of the show, Brooke Elliott, is plus size. She is so adorable. Love it. The creator of the show created Bones (one of my very favorite shows, Seeley Booth is so HOT) so I knew this had show had to be good and I was not disappointed. Check it out this Sunday at 9:00.

Weddings that you feel VERY important at!!!

Princess and I went to a wedding this weekend and I have to say I was feeling very important. It just so happens I, yes that is right, I introduced this couple a few years ago. So I had abit of a puffed out chest. I have to say I did match up a handsome couple. I just knew there would be a prominent place for me to sit. I thought there might even be enough space for princess to sit in that area with me. I was some what shocked to find I merely had a regular seat. HMMM! But once the wedding began it did not matter. Prior to the beginning of the ceremony I was saying something to princess about she would see one day how it felt to be a mom and her daughter thinking she was just the the dumbest thing next to dirt and I hoped that I would be around to hear it. You will not believe what she said -she replied that I would not hear it because I could not hear good now. I think I am going to quit hearing her request for money and other things. I found at the reception I was told many times that I was responsible for this union. You know me- always glad to take the credit for something good, lets hope this marriage stays good. I don't want bad press!!! Also I did mention not to send me the bill for the wedding and would not send them the bill for my match making services.

As usual I was scouting out the single boys for my princess and did I find her a cutie pie. And I think he might have looked at her a couple of times. AND, this is very important, he has fantastic parents. That is of utmost importance to me because those people are the ones that I will have share my grandchildren with and let me tell you there are alot of boys I really like but their mamas, not so much!!!I cringe at the thoughts of "his mother" trying to take over and be bitchy, that is so my job! That is why I have had to put up with these hormonal girls growing up, she did not have to do that. She had her time with her sweet boy while he was growing up - I did not have my time with my girls growing up, they were too busy for me. But that is suppose to all change when they get married. Not that I want Princess or Angel Baby getting married anytime soon but I am already on the prowl for a good son-in-law that has parents I like, will be good to my girls and can produce pretty grand babies!!!
