Recently I was invited by a girlfriend to a “Who the heck do you know?!” party. It was a networking event for women started by Karen Sacksteder. When I heard Karen’s story, I knew I had to attend and had to get to know her.

You see, a couple years ago, Karen went through some very tough times. Her husband of 30 year passed away. A few months later, her two sisters were diagnosed with breast cancer. Then, Karen found out that she had breast cancer too. But she didn’t give up hope. She lost her hair but maintained her sense of humor (even writing this book – Vivacious Vivian: The wig that helped a girl through breast cancer). Karen credits her sisters and her girlfriends for getting her through this tough time. And actually, because of her girlfriends, she started the “Who the heck do you know?!” parties to bring women together and to initiate friendships. (If you’re in Cincinnati, please visit Karen’s beautiful home interiors store: Sacksteder Interiors.)

What girlfriend of yours may be going through a tough time? You can be the world to her just by caring, listening, helping and even crying with her. Never underestimate the power you have as a girlfriend. You may think you’re just a friend, but you may be the world to her.

Who the heck do you know? How can you be the kind of friend you’d love to have? To the world you may be only one person, but to one person you just might be the world! Life really is better, together with your girlfriends!

Happy Thursday Girlfriend!
