Good Advice

    Isn't this the cutest?  This is one of my Christmas gifts from my friend, Betsy.  I've never thought of myself as Lucy till now, but there is a bond in more ways than one.
    There is a difference between advice and opinion.  Sure I give both, but hopefully my advice is 'good' and of benefit.  Advice should come from experience and lessons learned.  I think women of any age should have older girlfriends in their life to seek advice and younger girlfriends to help keep you in a youthful spirit. I have both in my own life and I reap the benefits. Friends are a kind of therapy, in that you can feel free to share both your joys and sorrows, struggles and triumphs, and woes and wows in a safe place.
     I am blessed by my friendship with Betsy.  She is a wonderful example to me of patience, love to others, generosity, and kindness.
