My occasionally snarky thoughts on everything from motherhood, politics, life and current events. Cocktails are sometimes mandatory. Bottoms up!

I got this in an email as a direct response to this:

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! Pass this on to your girlfriends! If you get this twice or more, you are lucky to have more than one girlfriend. Be happy!

Someone will always be prettier.
They will always be smarter.
Their house will be bigger.
They will drive a better car.
Their children will do better in school.
And their husband will fix more things around the house.

So let it go, and love your circumstances.

Thank 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 and 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, smile and say: I am too blessed to be stressed and too anointed to be disappointed. Blessed Be Ladies! Share with all the women you know. Remember: To the world you might just be one person...but to one person you might be the world.
Thanks McP. I needed that.
