I'm glad I'm a girl

It just hit me this morning how glad I am to be a girl. Yeah, I know, I know, girls get periods, cramps, horribly uncomfortable exams on an annual basis, pressure to be skinny and beautiful, etc., etc., etc.,...

But they also get to have girlfriends. And I have some of the best girlfriends in the entire history of the world.

I think I can safely say that 2006 has pretty much been the year from hell for me (I know, it's only October, let's hope we're done with bad stuff for the year!). Death, hormones, pain, infertility, Larry's continued unemployment/underemployment, it's all been pretty overwhelming. And yet you ladies have stuck with me through thick and thin. Whether you're in the office, across town, across state lines, or somewhere out in the mysterious world of the internet, you've been there for me, helping me laugh, letting me cry.

I don't know how I managed to find all you wonderful people. But I'm sure glad I did. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart. I just hope that I can be as good a friend to each and every one of you as you are to me.

I love you all.

Given that I just attended my "Great Turning" women's group last night and burst into tears during the checkin... I think I understand :-) We also talked about the universe bringing us the people we need. Chicks rule.

Most definitely!! I whole heartedly agree. I'm so glad you're my friend. Girlfriends truly provide a rich source of joy!

What? You don't think guys get together give gifts to each other and discuss the wrapping paper and write blogs about what they are eating? Hee hee. You are a great woman with a great laugh. I just wished you lived on the other side of the river!
