I have walked with my girlfriends both figuratively and literally for many a mile… I am so blessed. I have the best friends in the world. They are a diverse group of gals, and the most supportive, dependable, loyal and kind women anyone should have the good fortune to be connected to.
We recently spent a day together as we were celebrating another ‘Birthday’. It brought to my mind once again how we really are a group of sisters not just friends. Our long standing tradition of gathering together does not come about as just habit or obligation but of a genuine desire to share our lives; getting feedback, gathering consensus, balancing priorities, sharing burdens, delighting in each others accomplishments, laughing at the absurd and crying over the inevitable. I truly experience “the pleasure of their company” and I don’t take it for granted, not for one second!
At the end of this month I will be the one celebrating yet another birthday myself. I expect great things from this coming year but one of the principles I hope to most live by is that I make them know just how important, valued and precious they are, each one, to me. I am who I am today, to a very great degree, because of them. I could not be making this journey without all that LOVE! It is immeasurable!
