According to Marilyn

I am 9 years older than Marilyn. She's been my very best friend for over 50 years. During all those years we've talked to each other almost every day. (Even way before cell phones.... WOW What Phone Bills)

The Universe has given us parallel lives. We've never asked, it just happens. Because I'm older, I get zonked first ..... with whatever it is we are supposed to grasp.

The thought could never enter my mind to be displeased with Marilyn. I wonder how many people have ever known true friendship? We both have other friends and this post is no discredit to them. But no other person has ever entered my life who has not heard about Marilyn.

People have equated us to being sisters. No. Nowhere is it ever written that you even have to like your sister. Marilyn says we share a brain. My kids don't really know me but Marilyn knows me. Could be, the brain thing, I mean. Marilyn's a Virgo. Me, Pisces....... shadow signs to each other. There is something we were put here to learn from each other and I think we got that one nailed.


  1. That's a touching post about Marilyn. Nicely said. I enjoyed visiting your blog. Thanks for stopping by mine.

  2. Thanks to you, Gayle. Marilyn is a "connector". She connects people and she's so good at it. Getting a blog going is really a piece of work, isn't it?

  3. I haven't known her as long, but I agree with everything you said. She's the most openhearted person I know.
