That’s ten different personality types. Some A’s, some B’s, some that are somewhere in between. Some loud and aggressive, some quiet and shy. One is not necessarily better than the other, just different.
That’s ten different senses of humor. Some a little dirty, some a little twisted, some a little dry. Some can find humor in all of life’s foibles, while others are a little more reserved in their comedic choices.
That’s ten different cycles. I’m not going to get too far into that discussion, but if you are a woman, know a woman, love a woman, have shared a home with a woman, have a friend who is a woman, or have ever been around a woman, you know what I’m saying.
That’s ten different viewpoints. Ten different ways to see the same thing. Sometimes it’s a blessing to be able to see so many sides to the same story, sometimes it’s a curse, but it will always lead to thought-provoking discussions and perhaps even some personal growth.
That’s ten different beliefs. Whether discussing religion, politics, parenting, sex, or life after death, there is no lack of opinions tossed around, about any given subject, on a daily basis. No one belief is right or wrong, it just is, and I’m thankful that I am surrounded by a group of women who recognize that.
That’s ten different life experiences. Different backgrounds, different social status, different upbringings. Some richer, some poorer, some better, some worse. Some from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, and even some 90’s thrown in. Some have faced greater life challenges than others, but all with the ability to share, teach, and grow.
That’s ten different purses. Contained within those purses you will find all the necessities of life. Kleenex, tampons, pain killers and other various over-the-counter medications for everything from heartburn to eczema, gum, mints, perfume, change for coffee, phone numbers, make-up, and love. Purses are jam-packed full of love.
That’s ten very different women. Ten very special women.
(And I didn’t even put quotations around the “special”!)
