* I WONDER *

I Wonder: What is it about women's friendships that make them so special? And what is it that attracts one person to another in the first place?

I've never studied psychology or human behavior but I do know one thing. I know about myself and my reasons for connecting with someone as a friend, a woman friend. It only takes moments for me to know if someone has a sense of humor. Bing! And if we find out we have similar ideas about what's funny and what isn't. Bing! Instant Friend!

A very thoughtful, funny and sweet friend sent me this card a few days ago. She knew I'd been going through some tough times and thought I'd get a kick receiving a funny card in the mail. She was right!
This is the front of the card and it really does have huge fake eyelashes on it! I laughed the minute I opened the envelope and saw those.

And this is the inside of the card. Another belly laugh!
Underneath, she wrote her usual, caring and funny words.
It made my entire day....uh...week!
 
 
Welcome to my newest follower, off kilter. I hope you'll stop by often and always enjoy what you read and see! Thank you!

  2. I hope the tough times are getting better. It's always sad when a friend is going through tough times.

    You're right the card is a nice picker-upper. It put a smile on my face.

  4. I tend to agree with you. It's hard for me to be a friend to someone without a funny bone.

  5. Hope you're feeling better. I'll pray for improvement, whatever that might be.

    The Lord knows what He's doing even when we don't. My best friend is a lady who is my complete opposite, and I don't know what I'd do without her. She's the baby sister I always wanted but didn't get until I was in my 20s. We met at work. I was already married with two kids (my 3rd wasn't even thought of yet) and she was recently divorced and living the single life. We had nothing in common. At all. AT. ALL. She called me one day, and then another, and then another. She pursued the friendship---inexplicably---and I'm so glad she did. We're 21 years into a lifelong friendship now, and she is truly the baby sister of my heart. One of the greatest gifts I've been given. Hmmm...I guess maybe I need to write about it. LOL Funny that I never have. I guess it's time, though. So...thanks, Becky!

  11. So sweet of you friend to send that card. And it's cute too. You are lucky to get such great friendships in women. I have had my mix of luck lately with them. Some really great and not so great. Anyhow, hope things get better for you.

  12. One of the things I love about my female friends is that I often don't even have to tell them what I'm thinking. They just know. I'm very lucky in that regard.

    Hope good times are ahead for you, Becky.

  13. Gosh everybody! I feel as if I've portrayed myself incorrectly! When I said "tough times," I didn't mean it was anything really traumatic! I'm so sorry! I pulled myself up by my boot straps, smacked myself around a little bit, and said, "Get over it!" So, I'm all better now! I truly thank all of you for sending me your lovely thoughts. I most certainly know that I have wonderful friends!
