One of my friends, Baillie, always says "Oh my Lady!" in place of "Oh my gosh/goodness/etc."
Well, today, I feel like saying, "Oh my Lady..." literally.
Sometimes, being a lady is a hard thing. Don't get me wrong, I adore womanhood, but sometimes, I just get tired. I get tired of makeup, of hair (and I have lots and lots of it!), and of that monthly reminder that I'm going to act over the top, cry at a commercial, cry when I'm making dinner, and, well, cry when I get caught at a red light.
Sometimes, I feel like nobody understands. Sometimes, I feel out of control.
Until I get a dozen roses. Or, until I can connect and empathize with somebody emotionally. Or, when I meet with a friend for coffee and find a great level of camaraderie.
Or, until I see this commercial...
Thank goodness we're not alone.
