Thursday Thirteen #15

Graphic from Yellow Rose's Garden
Thirteen Things...All I need to know I learned from my Girlfriends
Adapted from the book/email
  1. Good times are even better when they're shared. Oh, so true...bad times are better too when we can share them together.
  2. A long talk can cure almost anything. Amen! And we sisters can talk, ya know. A friend of mine believes a hot Krispy Kreme and some chocolate milk can cure all the worlds problems. Anyone want to take that bet? :)
  3. Everyone needs someone with whom to share their secrets. It might take a long while to find that person/those people whom know all about you and love you just the same, but it can happen. I am so thankful everyday for the girls that the Lord gave me.
  4. Listening is just as important as talking. That's a key point in marriage too!!
  5. An understanding friend is better than a therapist and cheaper too! HAHA! Now, that's just funny!
  6. Laughter makes the world a happier place. It sure does...a smile can change the person's apperance and feelings in a moment.
  7. Sometimes you just need a shoulder to cry on. Enough said.
  8. Great minds think alike...
  9. You are never too old for a slumber party! I wish we had them more often, but our children will start having them soon. :)
  10. It's important to make time to do "girl things". My husband is so good about giving me that time to do "girl things". I am so grateful for that!!
  11. Calories don't count when you are having lunch (or any other food) with your girlfriends. No one really believes that, because our waistlines show it.
  12. Gems may be precious, but friendship is priceless!
  13. I thank my God in all my rememberance of you, always offering prayer with joy in my every prayer for you...(Philippians 1:3-4)

Always happy for my wife to go off and do girl things, as you put it. As long as it helps her relax and remember she's not just a wife and mother :o)

Thx for stopping by my TT

Jodi said...

Great 13 list. One can't have too many girlfriends. Sweet! Mine is up. Happy Thursday!

Ghost said...

This reminds me of a plate I inherited from my Grandmother.

True friends are like diamonds, precious but rare.

False friends are like autumn leaves, found everywhere.

Great list. Have a happy.

Lisa said...

A great list and so so true! :)

I don't have any "girlfriends", but my human pet does. She says that this is definitely all very true. Friends, overall, are a blessing, but girlfriends are a treasure she says.

Terrific list and thanks for visiting my blog today!

I wish I had a really close girlfriend, but my sis and I do a lot of things on your list. We def need a slumber party soon!

Have a great Thursday!

You're so right, and I think your friend is on to something with the Krispy Kreme theory :)

Have a wonderful day!

It sounds like your friends are blessed to be able to call you friend also. I just realized the importance of girlfriends recently- I had been trying to fly without and it just doesnt work. Be blessed today.
