Thankful For My Girls

They've picked me up at my lowest and laughed with me through the best of times.

Thankful For My Girls

I remember growing up I couldn't stand having friends that were girls.
Girls were awful friends, and so I surrounded myself with a group of awesome guys.

I never in my life thought I'd have women who I would enjoy being around.
During this time of singleness God has given me some really precious women.

I have to say, I would rather spend my evenings with them; talking, watching tv, drinking wine, and lounging in our pjs than out on a date.
I've noticed that as I've grown, the need for strong women in my life has also grown.
It is hard to go through life without someone you can count on and trust with all your pain and brokenness; especially if you are single.
I realize now how important my girl friends are, and how much I need them in my life.

There are things I can share with the ladies in my life openly without judgement that I couldn't ever share with someone who wasn't my husband.
When I was younger of course, that was never the case.

I'm amazed at how the relationships in my life have changed.
I went from being the girl with all guy friends, to a woman surrounded by sweet ladies that love and cherish me.

I have relationships that I hope will last a lifetime with some really special sisters.
I couldn't be more thankful for the support and love they give to me.
They've picked me up at my lowest and laughed with me through the best of times.
I'll never be able to thank them enough.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.
