Being the Mama of boys, I need my sisters of the Estrogen persuasion from time to time.
I don't have any sisters, so my friends become my sisters. I don't get to hang out with them as often as I'd like. Maybe one day life will slow down just a little bit for all of us and we will be able to have smart dinner parties and Girls' Nights and such. In the meantime, I thought I would share with you some of my favorite people and why they are. This is in NO particular order.
Mary Moses - I have known her since Kindergarten. She is a gorgeous strawberry blonde that is just the perfect of mix of sweet and spicy. She is a social chameleon, and a great listener. Everyone that meets her is instantly smitten with her. I am so happy to have her in my life.
Mary will forever be my sister.
Letti Byrd - she, to me, is the epitome of a good Mama. I have many, many more steps to go to be like her. Where I am manic and loud, she is calm and quiet. She was made to be a Mama. She lives 2 doors down from me, and I am so grateful to have her as a Mama model.
Andrea (Andi) Titera - We just recently reaquainted, losing touch because I was a mean person in my teens, and I have to say, it was like starting where we left off some 20 years ago. We can go for months sometimes in between calls, but when we reconnect, it's a 3 hour chat fest! We have lots in common, and the one thing I HATE about her, is that she looks EXACTLY like she did in high school. Still lovely, and she still has the same mannerisms. Oh! She's Italian too!!!
Cheri Freund - She always remembers me on holidays and such. We are text buddies and always has a hug waiting for me. I love hugs. Her hubby saved me from going crazy and doing something stupid to my backyard neighbors after 2 years of torture from them. He's a cop, they are now quiet, I will forever be indebted to her and her hubby Bill!
Holly Morris - She is one of those people that you just want to talk to all the time. Low key, but with an edge, I can be exactly who I am at that moment with Holly, with no judgement. I met her at a show, and I think she is just the bees knees.
Terri Rudder - Another great Mama. She is 11 years younger than me and I have so much to learn from her. She has 4 children all close in age, and all doing commercials. She is quite possibly the sweetest person on earth, but the most interesting about her is that she tells me she has had a "past" when she was a teen. I just can't see it. She is married to a very cute, funny man that tricks me every time I call their house. I haven't seen 2 people more in love in a long time.
Angela Wagnon - I have the most gorgeous friends! This one could be a model in a minute. A great mama, with energy to spare. I love talking with her because she is very animated and has a way of making you feel like you are just the person she has been dying to talk to. She is a refreshing part of any day I get to talk with her.
Dee Dee Taylor - our hubbies went to Jr. High together. I don't get to see her much, but when we do, I love that it is a cerebral conversation. She and her hubby are 2 of the smartest people I know, and my favorite thing about Dee Dee is her Mama Bear ness about her kids, and her concern for her children's education. This is a lady you want on your side, and you just can't help but be on her's.
Annie Waddell - She's Greek, and she is a kick in the head! Our Dad's are exactly alike, and we can both do their accents perfectly. She is a sister to me because we get each others mentality of how to cook for 80, and just don't know how to stop. She is a giver beyond compare and is always going in 2o different directions. She always make me feel like I am worth a million bucks.
There you have it... just a sampling of my favorite people. More to come in the future. I wish we could all get together a lot more often... but I will take what I can get. I love you all, my sister's in life, motherhood and joy!
Have a great day!
