I had lunch with my dear friend Mary yesterday. Time flew as we got caught up. She is as wonderful as always.
A true friend to the end.
Do yourself a favor this week. Get in contact with a friend you have not talked to for some time. Call them, email them, snail mail, whatever. Just do it.
Friendships are one of the best gifts that God gives us and we do not take advantage of the joys of this blessing near enough.
Friendships, especially girlfriends, make us laugh, listen to us cry, and tell us the truth. They stand up for us, they honor us and they love us. They sometimes know us better than we know ourselves.
I know that I am very blessed with several dear friends.
I know women that do not know or understand the friendship thing. They say they have that with a Sister, a Mother, or even with a Spouse.
It is not the same thing.
I am very close to my sister and know that my husband is the best person for me, but as a husband. I would never want to replace his friends, nor would I let him replace them. I am a better Wife, Mother, Sister, Daughter, and person because of my friendships.
GO out there and embrace your friends! When that friend tells you they are so glad you got in contact with them, know that I am too. We all deserve a good girlfriend!
