With a Little Help from My Friends - Joe Cocker

The Adventuers of Supermom®

The song With a Little Help from My Friends by Joe Cocker is one of my all time favorite songs.  I found Wonder Years on Netflix a few weeks ago and of course started to hum the song and then I started to sing it out of tune.

What would you think if sang out of tune,
Would you stand up and walk out on me ?
Lend me your ears and I'll sing you a song
And I'll try not to sing out of key.

I try to surround myself with people that appreciate who I am and what I have to offer and people who understand what I want out of life.  Our experiences make us who we are and we change throughout life.

Having kids changes us, getting married, having a job, divorcing, another marriage, more kids, a pet, life….

Recently I was able to go out for dinner with three gals that I think are amazing.  We can relate to each other through life.  We had delicious food and fun conversation.  My favorite topic was how we would eat Swiss Cake Rolls as a child.  Personally I would peel the chocolate off around the roll then unroll the cake to get to the icing.


I savored those double Swiss Cake Rolls just like I would take the Nutty Bars apart to lick the peanut butter off the crispy wafer.

It was pretty cool to remember those memories from childhood because I had forgotten all about them. 

I’m glad I was able to spend time with those three amazing women.  I’m glad that we were able to take a moment from our busy day as moms and wives and as women to venture out.  With a little help from my friends I am able to step back, take a deep breath and remember how cool I am.  {gentle smile}

So the question I want to ask,

How do YOU eat your Swiss Cake Roll?
