I’m feeling cranky today. I also feel fat and worthless. Chalk it up to PMS, but it still makes for a crabby day. I was puttering around the house after my workout wondering how I was going to get out of my funk and it occurred to me that what I really needed was a girlfriend who could understand my feelings. Since everyone works, I wasn’t sure who I could call, but Mary answered her phone and had time for me. Mary and I have known each other since we were nine and can understand each other’s feelings. I knew I could just spew out all my emotions without any judgement. We chatted and laughed and I felt much better when I hung up the phone.
Men come and go, but great girlfriends are forever. Here’s to all the wonderful women in my life. Thank you for being there when I need you.
