Having Girlfriends is the Best

Having girlfriends is the best. Your girlfriends can tell you off over a bottle of Gnarly Head California cab and you will hug them for it. Your girlfriend can tell you what you should do with a man who is giving you the blues and you will totally listen -- you may not comply, but you will listen. It’s a girl thing. Have a table full of food laced with hot spicy green chilies, stay up til 3 in the morning crying on each others shoulders. It’s a good thing. It’s a girl thing. My life would not be the same without my girlfriends. Trust me when I say I love the presence of the man in my life. Love the feel of his arms around me and his lips all over me...however; something about the company of my girls is like a warm loaf of bread. Ladies, never underestimate the power of having your girls. Never underestimate the power of a good time exchanging ideas and feelings with like-minded females. Embrace each other; give each other the strength and the wisdom of your combined experiences. Teach your daughters to do the same.
