I’ve mentioned my friends a few times already. I have a close circle of friends I’ve dubbed my “Mastermind Group”. I got the name from Napoleon Hill’s classic book, “Think and Grow Rich”. He recommends keeping a group of people together, advisors in a way, in your corner. People who know more than you do, who can guide you or provide a sounding board. (I can’t recommend this book enough.) I have seven close friends—wow, when I say that aloud I’m amazed! Seven? I’m quite the lucky girl! These wonderful women make up my group. I go to them for everything—support, venting, laughter, dirty jokes, etc. I know they are there for me, and I hope they know that I am there for them. I love just talking to them and appreciate so many wonderful things about them. Sometimes, depending on the problem, I only go to one or two of them; sometimes all. But I know they are there.
Donna, Christine, Janis, Michelle, Marian, Sindy and Judy: I love you all and am so grateful and happy to have you in my life. You keep me sane.
