I noticed something funny last week. On the way to Gulf Shores the four of us vacationeers stopped for breakfast at Hardees. We ate and talked about all the things women tend to discuss when they get together....friends, family, church, work. You know how it goes. We listen to each others problems and joys. We are happy to offer comfort and smiles of encouragement. We look into each others faces reading body language...knowing what the other one is saying even when they don't express anything out loud.
So while we are deep in conversation, I notice, out of the corner of my eye, a group of guys come in, place their orders and one by one sit down across from us. It was then that I realized our two groups were displaying a perfect illustration of the differences between men and women.
This is what those guys looked like eating their breakfast together:
While this isn't a picture of us at breakfast that morning, we are sitting in the same format that we were that day.....face to face, ready to listen to each other.
