30 days of thankful - day 17

30 Days of Thankful - Day 17

My Friends

I love my friends.

There was a time when I didn't really have any close girlfriends.
I was very engrossed in my boyfriend
(i.e. Chris)
and spent all my time with him.
While he is, and always will be, my very best friend,
I am so glad I broadened my horizons.

A girl needs her girls.
And I have some of the best.

At any given time, I have no less than 12 women I can call on for whatever I may need.

I can really count on them to:
tell me if butt really does look fat in those jeans.
laugh at my stupid jokes.
meet me on a random Tuesday night for a glass of wine cause it was
"one of those days."
 invite me out to that new restaurant that I have always wanted to try.
 text me, just to say Hi.
watch my kid in a pinch, and love her as their own.
realize that my habit of being 20 minutes early is here to stay.

You've seen their pictures on here.
My gravy, are they ever lovin' gorgeous.
But they are so much more than that.
They are smart, and motivated, and witty, and wise.
They are healthy, and involved, and business women, and mothers.
And lordy, do they ever make me laugh.
Some of them I count on for advice, others for a pick me up.
Some for fashion advice and others to tell me when I am being less my myself.

I love them.
I hope they know that.
I hope they know how important they are to me.
I am so thankful for them.
