Yada Yada Yada

"Yada, Yada, Yada" is what people sometimes say when they want to skip over the details of a story.  However, "Yada, Yada" has a different meaning for me thanks to the book series "The Yada Yada Prayer Group" by Neta Jackson.  The first book came out in 2003 and it looks like there are six books now (although I've only read the first three).  The thing that I love most about these books is the "sisterhood" that is developed between the unlikeliest of characters.

For that same theme, I also love Rebecca Wells' books Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood and Ya-Yas in Bloom.  I can relate to Sidda...
“Sidda was tired of being vigilant, alert, sharp. She longed for porch friendship, for the sticky, hot sensation of familiar female legs thrown over hers in companionship. She pined for the girlness of it all, the unplanned, improvisational laziness. She wanted to soak the words "time management" out of her lexicon. She wanted to hand over, to yield, to let herself float down into the uncharted beautiful fertile musky swamp of life, where creativity and eroticism and deep intelligence dwell.”
And of course, I adore the movies "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants"!!  I have not got around to reading the books yet, maybe this summer...
“When life hands you lemons say 'hey I like lemons what else you got?”
“The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude about the problem. Got that?”
Girlfriends unite!!
