Lessons from the Golden Girls: Everyone Wants Someone to Grow Old With

Recently, a Facebook friend brought a Golden Girls episode to my attention . I’m a huge fan of the Golden Girls and regularly watch re-runs. For some reason, I forgot about this lesson from those wiser than me (and many others), but was very grateful to rediscover it and laugh as I recalled all the moments I sat with my mother, Blanche, Dorothy, Sophia and Rose and the excessive consumption of ice cream that would ensue (I wasn’t such a fan of cheesecake).

The Golden Girls aired from 1985 until 1992, when Bea Arthur left the sitcom – and in the finale left repeatedly only to come back in again and again!

Thank You For Being A Friend, Ms. B.

Bea Arthur’s passing shouldn’t come as a surprise. The brilliant actress and comedienne was 86 years old after all, but her death has rocked me to my core. Perhaps I’m already sensitive after losing one hero this month, my dear friend and companion, Crystal Quiroz, or perhaps its because Bea Arthur was more to me than just a star on TV or stage.
