Last night, one of my close girlfriends invited a group of us to come over for dinner. Becky, Anne, Janie, Faye and I have known each other for many years. In fact, we have been celebrating all of our birthdays together for 30 years. During that time we have been there for each other’s children’s births, children’s birthdays, illnesses, divorce, remarriage, new jobs, starting a business, children’s weddings and, this year, the first death of a husband.
Well, our wonderful evening together was filled with tons of girl talk. Things like upcoming marriages of our children, grandchildren, travel, latest books read and many more topics. The evening had a warm glow of girl buds savoring the friendship of the past and looking forward to the future.
My husband has a Guy Saturday Morning Breakfast that has been happening for 15 years. I always want to know what they talk about because I hear how much fun they have. Well here goes … they discuss football, any other sport of the season, politics, latest stock market trends and hot tips in the business world.
Why don’t guys have fun things to talk about? Probably because as women we are the relationship builders and nesters. It’s ‘Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus’, isn’t it?
But aren’t we thankful that we can still celebrate and tolerate our differences?
… and that Makes Momma Happy!
