I just spent my morning with a wonderful friend. We met at a psychic fair and hit it off immediately. Lately we’ve been meeting once a month for coffee. We share experiences, feelings, life situations, and best of all, the gift of unconditional listening. This is a true gift in these challenging times of getting to work, aging in place, and the uncertainty posed by what we are all living through. I feel renewed, refreshed, and ready to go at it again in honoring what I have come here in this life to do.
So I am lifting a glass to my women friends. You get me when my husband doesn’t. You get me when I talk of the spiritual life and the Gods. You get me when I need to express a little self pity so I can pick myself up again and go on. You get it when we keep on trying. You get it when we run out of energy from caring for others, have little or no self-care time, and still need to keep going. You get it. You are wives, mothers with children, mothers with grown children, and/or pet mothers. You are single and independent. Whoever you are, wherever you are, you are fucking awesome. Skald! Salud! Cheers!
