Linking Up with the Lovely MamaKat's Pretty Much World Famous Writer's Workshop....
2.) Who is the last person you spoke with on the phone for more than 30 minutes? Write about one thing you talked about.
I have known my best friend, Danielle, for over 23 years. So, since we were
When our kids were little and we were stay at home moms, we talked on the phone every day, often for hours. But as we both went back to work and things changed, sometimes our lives get busy and we go weeks without talking (although since Facebook took over the world, we do talk pretty frequently now).
But when I am at the end of my rope, losing my mind, needing to grasp onto something to save me...I call Danielle. Anytime something big happens in my life, good or bad, she is the one I HAVE to share it with. She is more than a friend, she is my soul sister.
So this Sunday evening, when I felt like I was nearing my breaking point, I called Danielle.
"Danielle, I'm losing my flippin' mind over here. I am so stressed. John has to go to court about Andrew's bio-mom's visitations next week. My parents unexpectedly came over today. My client's daughter just called and her condition is badly deteriorating; she isn't expected to live much longer. I'm feeling totally overwhelmed and smothered here at home. We only have one car and I feel like I do nothing but taxi people around all day. I need a break!"
Not only did she talk me down off of the ledge, but she went a big step further. Her aunt has a condo on the beach, and she is kidnapping me next week and taking me to the condo. My kids will be at their dad's house, and I am running away. Danielle is going through a lot right now too, and needs a break as much as I do.
Danielle is awesome. She never judges, she is always supportive, and always honest. And she always has my back. And I know she's always there when I need her....just a phone call away.
So on Friday, we'll go have our Karaoke night, and then, we're off. If you need me, I'll be sitting on the beach, with a drink in
each my hand.
P.S. If you'd like to guest blog next week, let me know!
