The Lady's

I cannot count the number of times I have been strengthened by another woman's heartfelt hug, appreciative note, surprise gift, or caring friends are an oasis to me, encouraging me to go on. They are essential to my well-being.

Rich is the woman who has a praying friend.

When you are truly joined in spirit, another woman's good is your good too. You work for the good of each other.
- Ruth Senter

We should all have one person who knows how to bless us despite the evidence.
- Phyllis Theroux

Insomuch as any one pushes you nearer to God, he or she is your friend.
- French Proverb

Women need other women. That's what I thought when I looked around the room last night - sitting at my church's lady's event. We were all so different. Some young, some seasoned. Some career women, some SAHM's.  We were all over the board. Yet, still so similar. Each one of us came broken in some way or another. Each one of us recognizing the need to reach out to Him. And each one of us recognizing the need to reach out to one another. Like my first quote in today's post - I can't even begin to count the number of times a lady friend has lifted me up, spoke to my heart, pointed out some truth, motivated me to keep going. I need my girlfriends. The old and the new.....and you! 

Have a lovely day, friends.
