National Girlfriend’s Day-August 1-Celebrate the Day!

August 1 is National Girlfriend’s Day!  I know... how do they (and by the way.. who are “they”?) come up with these days.   

And it doesn’t matter who concocted this
National Girlfriend's Day... we all need to little girlshave one day to celebrate those special friendships that in some cases date back to when we were just beginning school.

Best Girlfriends ..................
 

-have been there for us when we broke up with our boyfriend then fed our bruised egos by being as mad at him as we were and promising to dislike him forever.

-would tell you exactly how hideous you looked in that oversized flowery dress that only you thought was “so cute.”

- hold your memories, hopes and thoughts close at hand because you have shared countless hours talking about them.

-are the one person you want and need to talk to when your world seems like it’s spinning away.


What are some things you can do to celebrate this day?

-plan a lunch or dinner ( my friends call it Girls Night Out) to one of your favorite places.

- plan an activity that you used to do when you first became friends, such as spending all day at the mall;  going to the movies; spending the day at a spa.(my personal favorite)

- pick up the phone and call them!  Even if you are miles apart, hearing your good friend’s voice can ground you and will remind you just what friends are for.


Where would we be without our best girlfriends?  Knowing you have one and that you both have each other’s backs, is like having a life jacket on when you’re out for a boat ride.  It gives you a lot more confidence, and you know that if you start to fall, that life-jacket will be there to help keep you afloat.

Two years ago I was back in Houston for my niece’s wedding and a reunion of my junior high school carpool.  I have known the lady on the left in the light blue for over 50 years (we met in utero-LOL-actually we met in our church nursery school)   

As we  were talking I looked around at the table of ladies and John (who was the only boy in the carpool)  and felt a little melancholy … thinking that there we were, as old as we were... and yet I still felt as if I was looking out at this table of little kids having lunch at school.

Aw, man, guess I missed it as the day is almost over. But you've inspired me to give a couple friends a call to get together. We just got back in town and I haven't seen them in weeks! Thanks for the info.

Alexandra- I kid you not, there is some kind of special day every day of the week.

Scott- I think I missed that day but worse than that I missed some kind of chocolate day as well. 

Shannon-hope you enjoyed you time spent with your friend today!!!

Peg- I've discovered many special celebration days that have no known origin. But that's ok... we'll celebrate anyway. 

Rebecca- hope you got to contact your friends in Virginia today. 

Nancy- we all get so busy and we even forget to pick up the phone and call just to say "hello".

Patty- Happy Girlfriend's Day to you too and congrats on your Realtor Feature. 

Janice- now that sounds like fun.  I love having lunch with my friends.

Debbie- It's nice to know that you have that one person you can call. 

Wayne- I'm still laughing!!! How funny is your wife.

Jennifer- I'm so glad you have BFF's you can have fun with and turn to as well.

Gretchen- two of my good girlfriends aren't in the same state so that makes it hard.
