I have a “rag doll” stitchery in my dining room.
She reminds me of my younger years...
Simpler times.... best friends, hopscotch, creamsicles.
Dreams, diaries, and secrets.
Laughing the afternoon hours away!
Recently I read the following quote and I was reminded that we should never let life get so busy that we forget to spend time with our girlfriends....
“No matter who you are you GOTTA have you some girlfriends
to laugh & cry & pray & eat & dance & shop & do life with.”
- Anita Renfroe, comedian
IT’S TEA PARTY TIME:
Why not bake a cheesecake (easy recipe below), set out a few dainty tea cups, and invite a friend for an afternoon (or evening) of reminiscing and thanking God for the blessing of our girlfriends..
1 graham cracker crust
16 oz. Cream cheese, softened
1- 6 oz. Can frozen orange juice
1 can Eagle Brand Milk
10 oz. Cool Whip
Mix cream cheese, milk and orange juice with
mixer. Fold in cool whip. Pour into crust &
refrigerate at least 4 hours.
A time worn Rag Doll
she now sits high on a shelf
True Friends Forever
- Donna Weaver (haiku)
Who is your oldest and dearest girlfriend? Does she know you are thinking of her today....why not let her know!
Who are the girlfriends on your spiritual journey?
Do they know how important they are to you.... why not tell them today!
MORE QUOTES ON FRIENDSHIP:
What shall I bestow upon a friend?
Laughter to sustain when sorrow may bring pain,
a bright song of life, a belief that winter ends in the glory of spring,
and a prayer of hope for peace that will forever stay. – Lea Palmer
Sometimes it is a slender thread,
Sometimes a strong, stout rope;
She clings to one end, I the other;
She calls it friendship; I call it hope.
- Lois Wyse
I just got off the phone with my best friend.... it was our weekly “girlfriend fix” ... our sanity check! Sometimes we laugh, sometimes we cry, and sometimes we share our dreams and prayers. She lives far away, but we’ve already decided that next time she visits.... a “tea party” we shall have!
Hope you have the blessing of a “girlfriend fix” this week!
God’s Peace, Donna Weaver
