Sharing Good Times

Helen Keller once wrote, “Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light.”…I can say from true experience that quote is right on!  I am an extremely blessed person as I seem to always state, and one of those reasons is because I have amazing female friendships. Although I have girlfriends I talk to everyday, I also have girlfriends I talk to once a week or once a month but no matter what they are ALWAYS there for me…whether to celebrate, come over with a box of tissues or even wine therapy, I can count on them.  I would instantly drop anything for my girlfriends because they mean the world to me. They are intelligent, caring, funny, generous, wonderful people, and yes, as if it matters, they are all pretty stunning too. My friends are the people who make me laugh and who understand and who know the things I like and the things, which make me cry. They’re the people who pick up the pieces and who always call at the exact moment I need them the most.  We will back each other without question, but we’re also not afraid to say if we think the other is wrong. We can practically read each other’s minds, because we truly know each other, and there’s such security in that. When I’ve felt in life I was losing all sense of who I am, my friends were the ones who reminded me; who brought me back (as well as my relationship with God).
Sharing good times with good friends is the greatest joy (along with love, DB) it makes life worthwhile. Whether sharing a meal together or a good conversation, there is nothing more fulfilling then spending time with friends. We must be thankful for the friendships that come our way, cherish them, respect them, honor them….the most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart!
