Who sang that song anyway? I think it was Bette Midler.
Last night a group of my friends got together to celebrate the October birthdays. I was looking around the table, amazed at the diverse personalities and the fact that we all care and support each other. For me this is also true of my online friends, a terrific group of women that I would never had the chance to meet in "real" life.
I marvel at frienships but when I got home I started thinking about the Farmer, and men in general. Of course we all know that the sexes are wired differently and men are from Mars but my thoughts revolved around the fact that men don't appear to have friendships. They have buddies and casual friends but I can't think of two men who are in a friendship relationship that resembles the friendships that women experience.
It must just be that wiring thing, that men don't need that type of emotional support. I don't know. Maybe one of my readers is a psychologist and can explain this to me.
All I know is that I'm blessed beyond measure with great people in my life. My neighbor, known here in the blogosphere as the Queen Bee, is always there for me and so caring wise. I've just reconnected with my friend Jan, also known as Hooked on Sunflowers.
I was wondering, do you notice the same thing? Does your guy have real friends or does he have buddies? Now that I think about many men have best friends - their wives or significant other is their best friend. I know it's true in our case. I am the Farmer's best friend!
