Ya Gotta have Friends

National GirlFriend Week
Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
So love the people who treat you right.
Love the ones who don't just because you can.
Believe everything happens for a reason.
If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands.
If it changes your life, let it.
Kiss slowly.
Forgive quickly.
God never said life would be easy.

He just promised it would be worth it.
Girlfriend and Sister's Week
I am only as strong as the chocolate I eat,
the hair spray I use and
the friends I have.
To the cool women that have
touched my life.. Here's to you!

National Girlfriends Day

What would most of us do without our sisters, confidants and shopping, lunching, and traveling girls?
Let's celebrate each other for each other's sake!


You Are Appreciated. 


  1. I love this post. I had this sent to me in an email awhile back and it sure made me think and rethink. It's so true. I love my girlfriends and my sister. They "get me."

    Sonny, I "get you." Hugs, Marla XOXO

  3. good morning sonny. i'm glad you posted this! my sister just sent this to me this morning, ironic but love that i opened up on your blog and you're having the same thoughts for girlfriends and sisters everywhere! whooohoo! just makes me enjoy the women in my life even more. happy day girlfriend.

  4. This is such a cute and sweet post. Happy Girlfriend week to you! Be blessed. Cindy

  5. Me again! :) Just in case you might want to link this post to Woo Hoo!Wednesday....I'd love to have you and celebrating girlfriends and sisters week is a perfect Woo Hoo! post.

  6. I love that!! I have rec'd it thru email before but just love it. Those lil girls with their dresses blowing up is a riot. I remember when woolworths used to have those as you entered and left the store, and I remember standing over it and my dress blowing like that, and it was such fun. Another fun thing I used to love as a kid
    was jumping in the sheets as my mom was trying to make the bed. You know how you throw the sheet up in the air to get it to cover the bed before you tuck it in, when she threw it in the air we would dive in and it felt soooo good to just have the sheet settle down on you so soft and smelling so fresh from the clothes line!! lol
    Aren't some childhood memories so fun!!
    Have a great day, and what a fun and lovely post and so true too!
    Have a good day my friend,
    Blessings, Nellie

  9. I'm so glad you all liked this.. Lori, I did get it from your mail but it was too special not to share- so THANK YOU..

  15. I love this photo! I reminded me of being little and standing on top of my grandparent's floor heater. My cousin and I would let the heat go up our nightgowns and then go to be at grandma's house all warm.
    Thanks for sharing.
