A few weeks ago I watched “Where the Heart Is” with Natalie Portman, Ashley Judd, Stockard Channing, and Keith David on the Oxygen channel for like the sixth time and as usual I was touched. Novalee, (Portman’s character), seemed to have had bad things happen to her just as much as she blinked her eyes but during one of the most critical times of her life, (You’ll have to watch the movie), she met people who positively impacted her life far beyond what she could have thought of. Although it wasn’t written into the movie, I’m betting that Novalee wondered why these strangers had come into her life and blessed her the way they did, but she was thankful. Novalee had no idea that these people had come into her life for a reason when she first met them.
“Where the Heart Is” got me to thinking of people in my own life who were once strangers but are now special to me. I’m thinking in particular of the Good Life Girlfriends. When I first met Anissa Barbee, Katrina M. Harrell, LaShanda Henry, and Rhonda Nails, I had no idea that it was for the “long-haul.” We five ladies come from different places and offer different services, but we’ve bonded beyond the business which has allowed us to organically blend together and then wrap our services together to bring the ladies of Eastern North Carolina a Women’s Day Celebration and Workshop on Saturday, December 1, 2012 from 11 a.m.-5 p.m. at the Community Room in Crabtree Valley Mall in Raleigh, North Carolina.
