This was shared with me the other day. The conversation about friends has come up with my daughter and me many times over the years. So this is dedicated to her.
Love Ya, MOM

When I was little, I used to believe in the concept of one best friend, And then I started to become a woman. And then I found out that if you allow your heart to open up, God would show you the best in many friends.

One friend is needed when you're going through things with your man. Another friend is needed when you're going through things with your mom. Another will sit beside you in the bleachers as you delight in your children and their activities. Another when you want to shop, share, heal, hurt, joke, or just be.. One friend will say, 'Let's cry together,'Another , 'Let's fight together,' Another , 'Let's walk away together.'

One friend will meet your spiritual need, Another your shoe fetish, Another your love for movies, Another will be with you in your season of confusion, Another will be your clarifier, Another the wind beneath your wings.

But whatever their assignment in your life, On whatever the occasion, On whatever the day, Or wherever you need them to meet you with their gym shoes on and hair pulled back, Or to hold you back from making a complete fool of yourself ... Those are your best friends.

It may all be wrapped up in one woman, But for many, it's wrapped up in several.. One from 7th grade,One from high school, Several from the college years, A couple from old jobs,On some days your mother, On some days your neighbor,On others, your sisters, And on some days, your daughters.

Thanks for being in my circle.

  5. Wow! This is a great post and one that is so true. I never thought about friends quite like you shared, but as I read your post, I smiled. Yes, different friends contribute different qualities to each of our lives. You illustrated it all beautifully. Thank you for the reminder, and thank you for what you contribute to life.

  6. This was so cute...and the illustrations are perfect for it!

  7. Mother,
    You have helped me with so many friend issues over the years. You will always be my best friend!! I love you.
    Your daughter!!

  8. Christine, What a great posting on 'best' friends. It's exactly so. Each one is a 'best' in her own special way. And what a great way to affirm each one without making another feel 'out' in some way.

    Loved the cute graphics! Hot babes!

  9. Good to hear from you. I'm still posting pictures from my trip to Snoqualmie Falls. I hope to finish tomorrow.

    Cute post. The pictures are funny yet bring back memories.

    Have a fun weekend.
