Some of our Best Pearl Friends are Guys

God bless those wonderful men in lives who love and support us. I have a wonderful husband, a son who is loads of fun AND I have pearl friends who are guys….like Freddy Davis. I am so thankful that I have been able to add pearls of wisdom from great relationships from dear guy friends. Freddy had been a good friend for many years and he is an amazing writer. He has kept up with me ever since we met but the icing on the cake is when he entered the Pearl contest and won these beautiful strands. I jokingly said, "Freddy, you have to model the pearls" and he did.God bless those wonderful men in our lives who love and support us.  I have a wonderful husband, a son who is loads of fun AND I have pearl friends who are guys….like Freddy Davis.

A Girlfriend is a Genuine Pearl in Our Life

You know the drill; our husbands are so tired of hearing our rant about this and that. What do we do when we need someone to listen and help us deal?   Call a girlfriend. A girlfriend is a genuine pearl in our life.  I love these special women because they accept me and celebrate my uniqueness. As a humorist speaker my girlfriends are also a source for my inspirational presentations.  I will never forget the year after I lost my mother and my girlfriends took me on a trip to the beach for my birthday.  It was like a giant hug from amazing women. I remember shopping and all of them went to Ann Taylor but I was drawn to a shop called, Dixie Diva. I am like a raven when it comes to being attracted to bling.  My point is that we celebrate each other’s uniqueness.

Friends Who Make You Snort; Joe Lee

When I say the word, "snort" I am not referring to drugs. I am talking about those deep uncontrollable hysteria. This is why I love to connect with my friends who make me laugh so hard I snort. And one of my favorite laughing buds is Joe Lee. #pearlsbookWhen I say the word, “snort” I am not referring to drugs. I am talking about deep uncontrollable hysteria.

I love the quote; “Friendship is like a violin.  The strings may stop for a moment but the music is still there.” 

One of the delights of writing my book, “Bury Me with My Pearls” was reconnecting with various friends and sharing the news that I wrote a story about them.   Joe Lee’s story is on page 106. It was a funny pageant moment that began with Joe Lee plopping down beside me at the Miss South Carolina Pageant.  I was the reigning queen and had to act “queenly.” As I glanced to see my fellow seat mate, I realized that I was in trouble.  There was no way to act queenly with Joe Lee next to me.
