LADY THOUGHTS AND CATS

These are posts for ladies today! Sorry guys...but if you like hysterically funny cat pictures...even if your not willing to admit it...you can go look....go on! I won't tell!


A young wife sat on a sofa on a hot humid day, drinking iced tea and visiting with her Mother.

As they talked about life, about marriage, about the responsibilities of life and the obligations of adulthood, the mother clinked the ice cubes in her glass thoughtfully and turned a clear, sober glance upon her daughter.

"Don't forget your Sisters," she advised, swirling the tea leaves to the bottom of her glass. "They'll be more important as you get older. No matter how much you love your husband, no matter how much you love the childrenyou may have, you are still going to need Sisters. Remember to go places with them now and then; do things with them."

She looked at her daughter, "Remember that 'Sisters' means ALL the women... your girlfriends, your daughters, and all your other women relatives too. You'll need other women. Women always do."

'What a funny piece of advice!', the young woman thought. 'Haven't I just gotten married? Haven't I just joined the couple-world? I'm now a married woman, for goodness sake! A grownup! Surely my husband and the family we may start will be all I need to make my life worthwhile!'

But she listened to her Mother. She kept contact with her Sisters and made more women friends each year.

As the years tumbled by, one after another, she gradually came to understand that her Mom really knew what she was talking about. As time and nature work their changes and their mysteries upon a woman, Sisters are the mainstays of her life.

After more than 50 years of living in this world, here is what I've learned:
THIS SAYS IT ALL:


Time passes.
Life happens.
Distance separates.
Children grow up.
Jobs come and go.
Love waxes and wanes.
Men don't do what they're supposed to do.
Hearts break.
Parents die.
Colleagues forget favors.
Careers end.

BUT...Sisters are there, no matter how much time and how many miles are between you.

A girl friend is never farther away than needing her can reach.

When you have to walk that lonesome valley and you have to walk it by yourself, the women in your life will be on the valley's rim, cheering you on, praying for you, pulling for you, intervening on your behalf, and waiting with open arms at the valley's end.

Sometimes, they will even break the rules and walk beside you.

Or come in and carry you out.

Girlfriends, daughters, granddaughters, daughters-in-law, sisters, sisters-in-law, Mothers, Grandmothers, aunties, nieces, cousins, and extended family, all bless our life!

The world wouldn't be the same without women, and neither would I.

When we began this adventure called womanhood, we had no idea of the incredible joys or sorrows that lay ahead.

Nor did we know how much we would need each other.

Every day, we need each other still.

Pass this on to all the women who help make your life meaningful.

I just did.

Love & Hugs to you all!

There are only two ways to live your life.
One is as though miracles never happen.
The other is as though everything is a miracle....Albert Einstein

    Cute cat picture. My kids used to lose to do all kinds of things to our poor cats. Like put the small dog and cat together in the same box and see what happenened (they both stayed on their end of the box). The sisterhood story is true.

    Dana...some days I am...and some days I feel like the cat does!

    Andrea, once when my son was little he put the cat in the dryer and turned it on. Luckily I had been fluffing pillows and it was only on air....I kept hearing..scratch, scratch, thump...When I figured out what it was the poor thing was so dizzy, it sat on the floor and meowed for twenty minutes, then threw up and went to sleep for an hour!

    Needless to say, one young man sat in his room, contemplating the error of his ways for several hours!
