I love spending time with good friends. An occasional Girl’s Night Out (GNO) is great fun.
The other day, my good friends and I took the opportunity to go and listen to a presentation by another friend of mine called: Understanding, Appreciating and Supporting the Men in Our Lives. I knew that we wouldn’t have as much time to visit with each other doing this, but I also knew it was good information we all could use to help better our relationship with our husbands.
We enjoyed the presentation a lot and each learned things that will help us. As we were leaving that night, we stopped to thank the presenter, Ramona Zabriskie, who is a friend of mine. I was telling Ramona that these are my good friends, the ones I have been singing with for years. Of course, being a musical person herself, she asked us to sing.
We don’t really do a cappella. Everything we do is with a live band or recorded music. But I figured we knew the harmonies to Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy well enough to get through a verse or so a cappella. So we did and Ramona loved it. It makes me very happy to be singing with these ladies.
Whether we are singing or not, I just enjoy spending time with them! This was the first chance we had had to get together since Nila got married. It was fun to catch up with her and see how she is doing in her new marriage. It’s so wonderful to see her happy after being alone for so many years.
One of the things we learned in Ramona’s presentation is that women use LOTS more words in a day than men do. That’s one of the reasons we are such social people! I truly believe that women need women as friends because we understand that part of being female and we relish talking with someone who understand and thrives on that too. And I seem to have a lot to say!
I’m grateful that even with our busy lives, that my friends and I can make time to get together and just enjoy each other’s company. And if we get a chance to sing while we are doing it…. that’s even better! Love you ladies!
I Am Grateful! How Are You?
