All a girl needs is a good pair of "support Hose"......

Yesterday was my last day operating as a salon owner. Everyone but Christi had moved all their stuff out but Christi wasn't working, it was hollow, empty, serene. Funny that the day I made the final decision to close the doors, the first client I told was Randy (the witch with the broken arm, cuz she ran into a tree) and yesterday the first client of my day was Jeanine. They have become friends over the years, and they are the talented artists that painted my beautiful murals in the salon. Girls need each other. We are all going through tough times in our lives right now for various reasons, most of them economical. But you always know who your friends are in these times. They are the ones who offer help, a shoulder to cry on and to just be there, without asking for anything in return. Last night Jeanine knew I was done around 7 and she and Randy showed up with a bottle of wine, and a beautiful wine glass, a camera, salami, chips, salsa and guacamole. With hugs and tears they were just there. Just there. Men would never be able to understand the value of this. Girls just know when you just need some one there to laugh, cry and well just take the time to be there. I did a lot yesterday with the help of my Mom and my friends Cheri and Gini also volunteered their time but I had it pretty much under control. By the time they showed up, it was wrapping up at the end of the night and it was just what I needed. I cried as they took pictures with me in front of the mural (I'm sure that one is a picture for the internet) and had a nice glass of wine with them and just felt happy to have true friendship and camaraderie. Thanks guys, it was just just what the "witch" Doctor ordered..........I love you both dearly.
