Girlfriends !!!

Hi Good day ppl or Women/Ladies/Young ladies/Girls !!! :)
Dont think I am late in posting the 'International Woman's Day' post. I have come to realize in these past 2years, your best friends are not going to be sufficient for the rest of your lives. You need a lot of girlfriends!

So now I have 3-4 different sets of collegue girlfriends, group of girlfriends of all the other activities I keep doing beyond work, some of older woman girlfriends who are my mom's friends actually,.... I get pulled in all directions by these groups but its amusing,fun & heart rendering to feel such a lot of genuine love, respect, trust, care,... from so many wonderful beings!

So this post which is lying in my drafts since a few days is dedicated to all the Wonderful Women in my Life!!! :) Thank you dears for everything !

A young wife sat on a sofa on a hot humid day, drinking iced tea and
visiting 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 girlfriends, " 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 children you'll have, you
are still going to need girlfriends.
Remember to go places with them now and then; do things with them. And
remember that "girlfriends" are not only your friends, but your sisters,
your daughters, and other 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, not a young girl who needs
girlfriends! Surely my husband and the family we'll start will be all I
need to make my life worthwhile!' But she listened to her Mother; she
kept contact with her girlfriends and made more 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, girlfriends are the
mainstays of her life.

After 50 years of living in this world, here is what she came to know
about girlfriends:

Girlfriends bring you chicken curry when you need help.
Girlfriends keep your children and keep your secrets.
Girlfriends give advice when you ask for it. Sometimes you take it,
sometimes you don't. Girlfriends don't always tell you that you're
right, but they're usually honest.

Girlfriends still love you, even when they don't agree with your
choices.
Girlfriends laugh with you, and you don't need canned jokes to start the
laughter.
Girlfriends pull you out of jams.
Girlfriends help you get out of bad relationships.
Girlfriends help you look for a new apartment, help you pack, and help
you move.
Girlfriends will give a party for your son or daughter when they get
married or have a baby, in whichever order that comes!
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.
Girlfriends support you when the men in your life let you down.
Girlfriends help you pick up the pieces when men pack up and go.
Girlfriends rejoice at what makes you happy, and are ready to go out and
kill what makes you unhappy.

Times passes..
Life happens.
Distance separates.
Children grow up.
Love waxes and wanes.
Hearts break.
Careers end.
Jobs come and go.
Parents die.
Colleagues forget favours.
Men don't call when they say they will.
BUT girlfriends are there, no matter how much time and how many miles
are between you.
A girlfriend is never farther away than needing her can reach.


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

I just did :)

Bye dears. Take care & as I say to all my Best friends " Love YOURSELF first, then only u can give ur love & care to some1 else. " This applies to guys too :P.
