Forties Top 40, #32

#32:  Supportive women.

I cannot even imagine the last decade without the supportive women in my life. My sister, my grandmother and other mothers and sisters-in-law, the women in my Bible study, my Moms In Touch group, the other baseball moms and school moms and neighbors, the women on praise team, my former colleagues, older friends, younger friends, just plain tried and true friend friends and even blog friends.  Seriously.  Where would I be without them?  Where would my husband and kids be without them?  Not that there aren't a lot of supportive men in my life, because there are.  But you, supportive woman out there...I would not be HALF the wife and mom and child of God I am, were it not for you.  You

I loved this post so much. What beautiful woman you have in your life. Such a blessing! Your Grandmom is just lovely. And so is your Mama. I am glad God gave them to you.

I am totally in agreement with you - women need women and without those intimate relationships we would be profoundly lonely. blessings, marlene
