Without a doubt, most women have braved many a storm, to become who they are today. That includes myself. As a worldly woman, in my 50’s, I have made many friends from all different backgrounds. Unfortunately, there are always going to be people who don’t care for us, who are not willing to be supportive or loving. As it is a new decade, it just might be time to let go. I have often tried to hold onto friendships or even acquaintances, that are truly dead. I have indeed braved many brutal storms. I won’t discuss them on this blog, but I will, in my book. My entertaining and cooking and baking and floral arrangements, are all creative outlets that give peace to my core. I urge you all to acknowledge your own storms. Be proud that you have made it through them, and find whatever it may be, that brings you peace.
