I’m sure that there are so many of us that can remember our first time watching the famed movie “Steel Magnolias”. Who hasn’t at some point in their lives quoted “Pink is my signature color” or “Drink the juice Shelby!” I find myself watching the movie time and time again. Laughing and crying like it is the first time. For those of you who haven’t watched the movie before, it is based off the original play that centered around the bond a group of women share during the death of the playwright’s sister, Susan Harling Robinson in 1985. What a fabulous title… the notion that something or someone can be as delicate as a magnolia yet tough as steel. There are many days that I feel like that myself… delicate yet tough. I’m sure that I’m not the only person out there that feels that way. Isn’t it comforting when we can share a familiar feeling with someone else? So here are my stories. Happy. Sad. Inspired. Delicate. Tough. Join me on my written version of this journey I call My Steel Magnolia Life.
