Welcome to the House!As I sit here this afternoon I find that I am spending a lot of time reflecting on friendships; specifically the ones between women. I had the joy of being able to spend a few hours with my cousin and her grandma this week. They were flying out of the Springs to take care of some family business back home in Washington. As we sat at the Seattle's Best cafe inside Borders we had an opportunity to share some of the good, and not so good, things going on in our lives. When I went to bed that night I lay awake thinking about how blessed I have been with the friendships in my life.
My girlfriends are amazing in their ability to overcome adversity, rise above the everyday and make a fabulous life for themselves and their families. It never ceases to amaze me how they can be available for their friends, children, spouses and more....despite the many hats they wear. I am ever grateful for the ladies who have prayed, laughed, celebrated, cried, mourned and just been with em over the years. No matter where the Army has sent me, I have found them...the friends who have blessed my life. My girlfriends are my heros, the sanity in my crazy whirlwind life, the joy bringers who always know just what to say or do.
Today I'd like to encourage each of us to take time to celebrate the love and friendship that are so much a part of who we are. I encourage you to share your story in a post below. If you prefer to design a project, please share a link!
