Now Let's Talk Steel Magnolias


As I expected “Steel Magnolias” was wonderfully written and well preformed.  The cast worked great together and their acting capabilities complimented each other without prejudice.  The revised script gave a warm feeling to what a southern African –American family would exemplify with regards to love, family bond, and friendship.  Although, there were many messages for us to gain from, the one in particular that I wanted to make mention of is acceptance!

Understanding that we all are imperfect beings should lead us to the awareness that we all make mistakes in various areas of life, relationship and sisterhood.  It was quite evident that all of the ladies suffered some type of life disappointment and each one dealt with it in their own way.  Nevertheless, each of them knew the other’s struggle and accepted their friend just as she was while allowing room for growth.    I would love to hear what message you gathered from the film….don’t be shy…communicating is good for the SOUL!

P.S. If you had to choose a character that illustrated you within your circle who would it be?  

Love,

Mandy

Real Friendships are Balancing and Relaxing

Given the fact that birthdays are very special to me, this past weekend was very exciting! It was time to celebrate one of my dear friends (Patrice Harrell) birthday.  During this time of her life's celebration, I witnessed friendships that are balancing and relaxing to say the least. I know you are wondering what I mean about balancing and relaxing.  Let me elaborate if you will. Experiencing balance within friendships consist of opportunities of being transparent,  unmasking, competition free, and growth developing moments.  As it relates to the term relaxing, simply put, opportunities to be less tense or anxious.

Therefore, as expected her birthday began with an evening of family, friends, food and music at her newly purchased home. Toasting, cheers, and bliss filled the atmosphere. The ambience was full of unconditional love and a strong presence of God's un-measuring favor in several areas including marriage and friendship.  As a result, the festivities called for a seco…

I Think I Have A Good One

It's been quite a while since my last post; needless to say I have missed you all.  However, there have been various things that have changed in my life's arena some great and some have been challenging.  Nevertheless, I hope and pray that all is well in your life and here's to the start of a series of many great posts from Sister's Expressions.

As you may or may not remember my last post was about "How to Meet the Man of Dreams", in which I discussed a conversation with two ladies who both met their dream guys by way of personal friends.  This method of meeting a great guy intrigued me to the point I was willing to give it a try once my previous relationship became bleak and sizzled out.  I began by sharing with those I most trusted that I was once again single and was simply looking for someone to go out to dinner with on occasion without any commitments.  An old friend once advised me that it's best to spend time with one's self right after a brea…

One Way to Meet the Man of Your Dreams

During a recent conversation with a couple of associates concerning relationships, I discovered an interesting point to meeting the man of your dreams.One of the ladies involved in the dialogue is in her late 20’s (Jeanne) and the other young lady is in her early 50’s (Cynthia).Jeanne is recently engaged to someone she describes as a wonderful and loving man who she thought she would never meet while, Cynthia is newly married to the man of her dreams.Given the fact that I was the only one single in the bunch I was provoked to ask the question, how did you both meet these great guys?Ironically, they both met the loves of their lives through good friends!
Cynthia shared that given the fact that your close friends really know you as a person and perhaps you have shared with them the downs of previous relationships that went sour that they know you best and are better equip to recognize the perfect guy for you.Therefore, it is within reason to believe that it is safe to let our close frien…
