Default To My Girlfriends

THESE WORDS ARE SO TRUE....HERE'S TO MY GIRLFRIENDS.

sometimes you don't.

the truth.

> ***girlfriends laugh with you and don't need canned jokes to start the
laughter.
>
> ***girlfriends pull you out of jams.

> ***girlfriends don't keep a calendar of who hosted the other's last big
party.

> ***girlfriends will celebrate for your son or daughter when they get
married or have a baby, in whichever order that happens.

> ***girlfriends are there for you in an instant, and when the hard times
come,

> ***girlfriends listen when you lose a job or a friend.

> ***girlfriends listen when your children break your heart.

> ***girlfriends listen when your parents' minds and bodies fail.

> My daughters, sisters, family, and friends bless my life! When we began

to your girlfriends/sisters/daughters.. I just did!

LC - Love the poem. By the way, I could use something for supper and all five bathrooms need a little work.

Thank you for sharing that, Little Chick! It's right on. (male gay friends are great, too!)

My gosh, Peggy. I would DEMAND a cleaning person with five bathrooms! Our neighbours at the cottage have five bathrooms in their cottage, while we have a measly outhouse.

Jodi, you deserve another bathroom! I'm so grateful to have two. Particularly as the attic toilet is still dismantled. Waiting for me to retile the darned floor. Somebody give me a hundred grand, and I'll get my life in order.

Ellis - We are in the same boat with our bathrooms. We are rennovating our house to get ready to downsize - it needs work because it is looking its age. We have done 3 bathrooms already and have 2 left to do. They cost about 11,000 - 12,000 each, so it has been a slow process. Along with replacing doors, installing hardwood floors, redoing the woodwork in the house... Oh the woes of rennovating. However, when done, we will inform the kidlets still living in the house that we are moving to a 1 (yes, only 1) bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment and they are not welcome to take the bedroom as their own. One can dream, right?
