“Talk between women friends is always therapy…”
I have been lucky this past week to have had the opportunity to have lunch with two new friends.
We shared old stories from our past, compared daily challenges we face because we’re now home not building careers, and talk openly about what we plan and dream for our futures.
The power of these luncheons has surprised me. Our maturity and past experiences seem to accelerate our friendships. I feel as though I’ve discovered a strong and ever-expanding circle of new old friends.
All of this could not have happened at a better time to help balance out the stress of filling out tax paperwork. It amazes me at the amount of data requested and how it all fits into some rather foggy and mystical equation. I’m not sure this is at all what the founding fathers had in mind.
This afternoon, I raise my glass to my friends, to my Michael for working so hard on the taxes, and I give thanks for my many blessings.

Good idea–hire a CPA. We did and do, it saves us so much stuff. The thing about women is wonderful. We often joke in our quilt that we are quilting sisters and that being together is our therapy. It’s true!
We hire a CPA–so much less stressful. We often joke about our quilting group that we are quilt sisters and that our meetings and retreats are therapy. It’s true. They are so wonderful. I hope you find that feeling with your new friends.
