Most people call it menopause, but I use the term, "Mental Pause," because for me it has created more "blonde" moments than I had during even my pregnancy. It has however, brought the real me to surface, someone I now embrace, love and enjoy spending time with. I love to laugh and I do it as often as possible so, on this subject I found a plethora of funny quotes and stories to share...these are great
and I hope they make you smile:
