Terry and I are just EASY together.
You know what I mean?
I don't have to SORT OUT everything that goes through my mind that I want to say to her and make sure she isn't going to be offended by it. She feels the same way about me. THAT is what a true friendship should be like in my book.
AND, if I do get upset with her, or she gets upset with me, we just GET OVER IT! We don't throw away a beautiful friendship because one of us messed up. We get mad -- we cry -- but then we run into each others arms and say, "I'm so sorry!"
Terry and I were talking about all of this today, and we agree. Some "friends" are just impossible to please, and they seem to be waiting to take offense at something you say or do. We both decided we don't need complicated friendships that make us uneasy and make us feel bad about ourselves.
My friends must realize that if they are looking for perfection in me, they are looking in the WRONG place!
Only Jesus is perfect!
And you are thinking, "WHAT ON EARTH is she talking about!!!?"
Someone I love very much is furious with me because I said something he/she did was stupid, and I STILL believe that what the person did was stupid. The definition of "stupid" being: Insensitive -- Silly -- Foolish. I will not be changing my mind on that!
Is anybody out there MARRIED?!
Do you and your mate ALWAYS AGREE on every little thing?
I promise you my husband and I sure do not. He hurts my feelings terribly sometimes. I hurt his. I can tell him something he did was stupid, but he doesn't fall apart and act like I'm a horrible person. He tells me all the time that something I did is ridiculous. I just tell him he is wrong, or crazy, or stupid or whatever. We argue. We laugh. We hug and kiss and forget all about it. We have been married 42 years, and I love him more than ever!
MY POINT IS, marriages and friendships should have firm enough foundations that arguments and disagreements don't dissolve them. We MUST let off steam, or we will burst! At least, I will.
Let's get back on HAPPY STREET again here! Did you see my latest VLOG about my Mom and the Beauty Shop and Mother's Day? If not, here it is:
Now, about our PLAY DAY:
We went to what we THOUGHT was going to be a "Grand Opening" at the new quilt shop in McKinney, TX called "Happiness is Quilting". We were thinking giveaways, discounts, finger foods, etc. as it just opened for business yesterday.
NONE OF THE ABOVE!
Fabric was $12 to $15 a yard. Terry and I headed straight for the sale rack way in the back. She got some nice fabrics for a baby quilt she has been asked to make. I bought fabrics to make more blouses for my Mom and myself. I saw a book I wanted, but it was $30. I can get it from Amazon for $19.
Sure hope that quilt shop doesn't go out of business next. We decided to go from there to JoAnn's where the prices were much better and we could find pretty knit fabrics.
We went to several other places including Belk's where we both bought several pair of pretty-colored pants. I think we got the same ones actually.
Gotta go. TV time, and I need to find something to watch that Jerry can stay awake to. He is asleep next to me, but if you woke him, he would tell you he is watching TV. He must have transparent eyelids!
