Have you ever just had to have something,and when you got it you wondered what made you think you HAD to have it??
Here’s a story I want to dedicate to all the women I met at my Christmas events this week in New Hampshire and Colorado:
Frantically searching for the doll her daughter had to have, my friend Janet drove all over town looking for Generation Girl Barbie. She remembered how ridiculous she’d thought it was to watch the Tickle-Me Elmo craze and couldn’t believe how desperately she now wanted to find this one-of-a-kind doll. Finally, she tracked down Generation Girl days before Christmas. Janet couldn’t wait to see her daughter Ali’s excitement when she opened the box and played with her new friend for days on end.
A week into the new year, Janet was cleaning house when she stumbled over Ali’s Barbies.Funny how they all look alike wearing no clothes! Generation Girl had ended up with the rest of her glamorous friends in a loss-of-identity crisis. Janet laughed out loud when she realized her efforts to accumulate the perfect collection had brought her nothing but a bucket of naked Barbies!
Okay, so we’re probably all too old for Barbies but don’t we all have our crazy “have to have it” moments? So, what are some things you needed to have, or thought you had to have – got ’em and still wanted more. You know what I mean. Let’s get real girlfriends – will they ever be enough?
Please post your thoughts in my comments area (you can be anonymous) and I will do a drawing from my “authentic friends comments club” for a copy of the message I shared this week about coming to a point in my life where Jesus finally became my “enough” along with a Starbuck’s gift card – my favorite Christmas treat! I’ll send someone a CD to keep and one to give away! And then you can check off one thing on your Christmas gift list :-).
Please note: I decided to extend this drawing through Monday since I am SO enjoying your comments. Also, I just finished my event in Colorado so I want to leave time for them to join in too!! Be sure to come back Tuesday, December 4th to see if you are the winner.
