Dinner with Girlfriends

Last night I had a dinner with a three girlfriends from my old big job. It was nice to catch up with them. We talked about kids and jobs and Britney Spears' parenting skills and going green. Everything from toxic shock syndrome to farts.

But it was just interesting to see how much I still have in common with them. I always seem to think that I have changed so much and am engrossed in this war and the military so much. Yet, we all have a common bond. Only one of them is still at the job where we all met. The other three of us have moved on. Get together 4 women who can bitch and complain about the old bosses and you've got a happy bunch of ladies.

So when I am thinking I am so different that people can't understand me, so caught up in my little military world, I need to pause and reflect about how much I do have in common with the people around me rather than simply noticing the differences.
