Jealousy Does Not Become You

I’ve spent a good part of this evening talking about the fact some of my long-standing male friends have recently gotten into relationships and how some of their girlfriends have felt moved to voice concerns about those guy’s friendships with me. They apparently perceive me to be some kind of a threat....more

When Women Rally Women

Bitches be trippin'. Yes, I did catagorize this under Spirituality, and it's about time we stand up from our pews, and look at the reality we are creating as women of this world....more

The "Other" Best Friend

+Always When+

The man jabbed at his oatmeal before he took a bite, certain he’d recognize poison if he saw it.  From time to time he used his binoculars to note his wife’s progress out in the yard. While he ate, he scratched on the notepad next to his bowl: church, filling station, library, home. He ripped the paper from the spiral and tucked it into his breast pocket, rose from the table and deposited his bowl in the sink, ran water to fill it. He returned to the picture window for one last property inspection....more

Reverse Snobbery: Too Pretty To Relate?

Oh...she's gorgeous. My heart sank a little as I saw Ann Voskamp's words, so inspiring and life-changing on the pages of her book, come to life in her small group study DVD. Her book, One Thousand Gifts, has been life changing for me.But her voice, decidedly sultry, didn't match the one I heard in my head as I'd turned those pages late at night. Her hair, a beautiful chestnut color, sat atop her head perfectly coiffed, not a strand out of place. And I'm ashamed to admit, I grew a bit jealous....more
I totally get this! Thank you for saying it outloud!more

DEAR SAD STRANGER: IT'S NOT YOU, IT'S HIM

I witnessed an incident Monday evening involving a young woman and her partner at a No-Frills in Toronto. It was the kind of incident women would have various reactions to. Me, personally, it just made me sad....more

It's Isn't Easy Being Green

I'm jealous.    There.  I said it.  I'm so jealous my blue eyes are turning green!  What is it that is making me so very green with envy? All those lucky bloggers headed to the BlogHer Conference in about six weeks.  I can finally admit that every time I see a conference related post, either in blog form or on the "Chatter" board - I can feel the green eyed monster awaken and rear its ugly head.  It mutters to itself; "Ok.  We get it.  YOU get to go to the conference.  It's going to be so much fun.  ...more
 @carolinabeckey I will be here, Beckey. You will almost always find me here.   LOL!more

Jealousy, thy Name is Mistress, and Three’s a Crowd

Jealousy wrecks destruction on a would-be lasting relationship, playing havoc on emotions and, most importantly, breaking valued trust. Jealousy hasn’t a heart or soul; it is destructive because it knows no boundaries. Jealousy is repulsive; it is crafty and unreasonable, a foolish game player to an ugly end. Jealousy is selfish; it lacks respect and selfless love. Jealousy is fruitless, and in the end it will leave you bitter and alone. Jealousy is not unlike having a mistress on the side; while living as three, ultimately, it will feel uncomfortably crowded, and someone must flee!...more
