The older I get the more I'm aware of what true friendship is and means. As a woman, it is hard to maintain good girl friends~ we're fickle like that. But also, I think we understand all too painfully what it means for certain friendships to have seasons in which they were most meaningful. Sometimes those seasons last a lifetime and sometimes those seasons end, with wonderful memories had and lessons learned. The more I realize this, the more at peace I am with the good friends I do have. I'm a lucky gal to be surrounded by so many thoughtful, creative, amazingly beautiful, grounded, faithful women.
Quote of the Day!
"What I expect from my male friends is that they are polite and clean. What I expect from my female friends is unconditional love, the ability to finish my sentences for me when I am sobbing, a complete and total willingness to pour their hearts out to me, and the ability to tell me why the meat thermometer isn't supposed to touch the bone."
