Still Lost in Thought...

Tonight our women's group got together for Girls Night Out. We were at the same restaurant for nearly 4 hours!! It was so nice (and somewhat amusing) to be with others who could relate to me at this point in my life, especially when that comfort and guidance came from all different walks of life.

Sometimes we get so caught up in our own lives (and the perceptions of how we view other's lives) that we miss out on so much. Every person on this earth has a story to tell. Every person we come in contact with has a history. Every person we pass on the street has a LIFE too.

We shared stories that made us laugh. We shared stories that made us cry. I feel so uplifted and yet at the same time--so incredibly humbled.

"The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, nor the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when [she] discovers that someone else believes in [her] and is willing to trust [her] with [her] friendship."
-Ralph Waldo Emerson


  1. I would give half of my left boob for a Girl's Night Out. (I can't sacrifice more than that, I'm still paying for them. Grin.) I haven't had one in forever.

  2. OH FUN! I HEART Girl's Nights Out!

    I love your little slide show to the right. Your kids are growing up so quickly! They are so cute!

  3. I love that quote. Sometimes I take for granted the fact that I have some great friends in my life. Thanks for the reminder!

  4. a small tear is trickling down my face.
    I miss you!
    I wish I COULD HAVE BEEN THERE TO CRY WITH YOU (fyi. BIG surprise that you cried!) I'm SHOCKED... I really am! :)

  5. wow, that sounds physically painful, but luffin the slide show too

  6. Friends are fabulous aren't they?

    I soooo need a girl's night out soon. Sigh...

  7. So refreshing isn't it? BTW, I love the pictures to the right! So sweet :o)

  8. Nice horse--I think :-) And I like that Ralph Waldo Emerson quote. Thanks for sharing with the world.


Oh come on-- the least you can do is say HELLO!! You didn't come all this way to turn around and walk away, did you? DID YOU??
