An ode to friendship

I caught up with some wonderful friends this week.

I always feel sorry for women who don’t have close friends. All my life I have had wonderful friendships. Soul Sister of course, who has been my best friend since we were 5 years old, and many others along the way. Some have been part of my life for only short periods, and others will be part of my journey always, but they have all encouraged me and blessed me, been honest with me and made me a better person.

So the other night I went out with three such friends (including Soul Sister) and while the café closed WAY to early, we had a great catch up.

The thing I love about this group of friends is that we can and do talk about every topic under the sun. We talked about our kids, and some of the parenting traumas we’re currently going through. We discussed our careers and our goals, our families and good TV shows we’ve discovered. One shared a significant spiritual and emotional breakthrough she’d recently had, which had brought her great peace of mind. Then we talked about the best way to do our daughters’ hair. We can go from politics to philosophy to online lingerie shopping to counting calories and our favourite flowers in a heartbeat.

It doesn’t matter what we talk about, I always come away feeling encouraged, and like I’m not doing this thing called life all alone.

So here’s to great conversation, and even greater friends – I would not be who I am, if you had not been part of my souljourney.  

Love to you all – you know who you are 🙂

    Last Thursday I found out that I would be moving next week, instead of at the end of the year. It’s times like these that you need a kit kat… (oh no that’s a break). I mean a Mintie… well no (and my sense of humour is somewhat ridiculous at times – and always when I move!) I really mean a girl friend. And so Sharon came over. We sat in front of the fire with a glass of red wine and ate take away Indian (the children went to her house!) and we talked and cried. We laughed lots – for 5 hours!!!! It was the best. I couldn’t do without my girlfriends. Great post. I shared it with Sharon! – Asta x
