The Beauty of a Woman's Mind

I sat next to an acquaintance last week at a scout meeting. We've never talked much, although we have served on the same committee for the past six months. But when has the lack of a friendship stopped women from talking?

During that hour and a half meeting, she and I:
discussed her hysterectomy,
actively participated in the meeting,
sang Christmas carols,
discussed her children,
discussed my children,
made tie/fleece blankets to donate to a shelter,
learned about each other's jobs,
shared our opinions of certain teachers,
interacted with several other families,
discussed roller coaster libidos, and
took our scouts to visit with Santa.
she made a brief presentation
and she may have learned as much about me as I did about her.

It was a very fulfilling night, and it made me once again appreciate the amazing
multi-tasking mind of women.

P.S. When I Googled "female symbols" why did I get images of butt-lifts?

Moms like you make me a tad paranoid...what was it, exactly, that you were saying about your kids' teachers? :)

I love women like you and your new friend. Men will never get this part. :)
ps. The picture is not there...or the butts have been lifted so much that I don't see them. :)

I went and hung with a new friend for a couple of hours Saturday- we learned alot about each other.

So many people fail to realize that we get so much more back when we volunteer than what we put in. I'm glad you had a good time and nurtured a friendship in the process.
