Good friends are the people you want with you on the happiest days of your life. They are the people you want with you on the hardest days and on the most ordinary days too. I am blessed to call some pretty amazing women my friends. I am blessed to have each one of them walking with me as we make our way through this journey called life. Each friendship is unique, beginning right when it was supposed to in the way God planned. One began in college when two young women met and found comfort and strength in each other as they began their lives away from home. One began when a super sweet pharmacist reached out to a wife and mother she knew from years of dispensing sticky pink liquid and tons of advice. Two friendships began in this very place when women separated by miles recognized through their writing how very much alike they were. Texts followed, and eventually, blog friends became real-life friends.
My People, My Tribe, My Circle, My Friends ~Whatever you choose to call the people you share your days with~ I hope that you find them. I hope that you text each other just to tell them that you're drinking coffee and watching The Bachelor. I hope that you can call them and ask them what medicine they think you should take. I hope that they stand beside you when your first born gets married, and you can laugh and dance and eat and drink and celebrate together.
Heather, Kathleen, Danielle, and Marian!
