Here we are - the coolest girls in Building 8063! We had our weekly "ritual" last night and took a picture of all 4 of us along with more of the pregnant bellies! We had some good food too - spinach artichoke dip, Aromatic Mushroom Galette (i can't believe that's really the name of it!), fettucine with shrimp and bacon, and Banana Creme Supreme (the next recipe I want to conquer!). Our husbands are actually coming home over the next few days so our ritual probably won't resume again until the deployment.
Below is a forward I received from my friend Candice. I thought it would be appropriate for this post.
Here's to Girlfriends!
I'm only as strong as the cocktails I drink, the hairspray I use, and the girlfriends I have. Here's to you! Why do we only have parties for each other when one of us gets married, pregnant, has a birthday, or retires? What would most of us do without our sisters, confidants, and shopping, lunching and traveling girlfriends? Let's celebrate each other for each other's sake!
Someone will always be prettier. Someone will always be smarter. Someone's house will be bigger. Someone will drive a better car. Someone's children will do better in school. And Someone's husband will fix more things around the house. So let it go, and love you and your circumstances. Think about it. The prettiest woman in the world can have hell in her heart. And the most highly favored Woman on your job may be unable to have children. And the richest woman you know, she's got the car, the house, the clothes....might be lonely. And the word says if "I have not Love, I am nothing." So, again, love you. Love who you are. Look in the mirror in the morning and smile and say
"I am too blessed to be stressed and too anointed to be disappointed!" "Winners make things happen. Losers let things happen."
Be Blessed ladies and encourage another woman.
"To the world you might be one person, but to one person you just might be the world".
