Girlfriends

So I went out for dinner tonight with 3 amazing women, and I admit it, I drank a little more wine than I might usually do - but I wasn't driving, and it was so good, and they had a 25% off special on the wine.

After returning home, I just sat in the glow of friendship - seriously, I sat here thinking about all the incredible women in my life, and how important they are to my well-being. I am tempted to start listing them with something specific I thank them for, but I know I would forget someone and I would hate to do that so I won't make the attempt.

But women - true friends - are so incredibly valuable in life. We get each other through relationships, parenting, loss, employment (or lack of it), weight gain or loss, relocation, and pretty much anything else you can think of. We support and love one another and offer unending and unconditional acceptance.

I couldn't survive without my girlfriends. And were it not for the wine, I would probably be able to go on for several more paragraphs and express myself far more eloquently. But for now I will just say it again - I couldn't survive without my girlfriends.

It's weird. It took me a long time to make true and good girlfriends. Now they save me. I didn't know what I was missing.

A 4th amazing woman that is stuck in Beijing and who likes wine is slightly put out.

Closeness has nothing to do with proximity or frequency... THANK GOODNESS!! Otherwise, I'd be in a world of hurt instead of protected by some weird spider web of women I love~
