"One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering."

Girly Time Fun

Last week was full of girly girl time!
One evening last week I had a get together with three of my wonderful friends.  
We've adopted the name Ya Ya Sisters for our little group
and we've been having a monthly
get together for over seven years now. .  I tell you, these girls know
how to listen
and know just what to say and do
to make me cry and laugh all at the same time!

 Sue,  me
AND
Gale and Peggy
Thank you Sue, Gale and Peggy for the  MANY WAYS that you
bless my life.
You truly are AMAZING WOMEN.




Last Saturday I spent the day shopping with
my two very special sisters and my
wonderful Aunts.

Melanie (sister), Cindy (sister) and Me
Aunt Becky and Aunt Kathy

Hobby Lobby, Olive Garden and the Mall were the places
we hung out for the day.
I think my sisters and I talked all the way there and
all the way home and in between,
while Aunt Kathy and Becky listened most the way. OKAY, since I 
know my sisters and aunts will be reading this, I better
confess up.....
I'll admit that it was probably ME
  that talked all the way there and back!!!!

Where did I get that talking gene??

I am so blessed to have such special friendships
with the BEST SISTERS in the world,
and  love spending 
time with two of the most wonderful aunts there ever could be.
Thank you God for my family!





"It is the sweet, simple things of life, 
which are the real ones after all."
Laura Ingalls Wilder



Now go and be your wonderful girly self,
and take a long and enjoyable bubble bath!

Sounds like a wonderful time!
I think we all need a group of women like that, or at least a few really good, close friends that we do life with.

I am blessed to have such a group. There are seven of us, and we have been together for 15 years!! We have been through a lot over the years as you can imagine.

Your post reminds me of something Judy Wise
( http://judywise.blogspot.com ) posted on her blog.."Some friends are coming to visit in a few days who always hold up a mirror to me that makes me feel like I've done well in life. We need friends like that. Who encourage us, really listen to us, find us to be excellent. (not perfect. But still excellent.)"

I just love that and I know that you know the truth of Judy's words as well

Mom, you SO gave me that talking gene! :-) You guys were so fun to talk to. I've never had the phone passed around to five people ever when I'm on the other end.

Be glad you can have friends like your YAYA's. Some of us don't really have that opportunity.

Love you,

Jess
