Right now I am enjoying a vacation with two of my oldest and dearest friends. This is our second year of taking a trip together and the beginning of a tradition I hope we keep honoring long into out golden years. We can be silly at times and dubbed our time the gathering of the goddesses! We empower each other and support each other and there is no better feeling. One of my sister’s at lunch yesterday shortened us to the grand “g’s” and I jumped in and said, ” no, not yet! that’s us after the grandkids come”.
Don’t underestimate the value of good friends. Especially girl friends. They are one of the most important things you can have in life. We need friends. The companionship, the unconditional love, the honesty.
As friends we make mistakes because we are after all human. But we love each other anyway. They are not afraid to tell you when you are wrong or being an idiot or hurting feelings because good intentions are always obvious. Friends are your biggest encouragers and will laugh and cry with you.
So fill your life with people who add value to it. Let go of those who don’t. Remember life is short. Tell your friends what they mean to you. Appreciate them. And just remember hearing a friend say they will always be there for you when you fall is better than hearing it from the cold hard floor.
So to my Goddess friends, I love you. I appreciate you and I thank God for your love, light and encouragement.
