GIRLS IN MY CIRCLE
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, you
Will be shown the best in many friends.
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 6th grade, one from high school, some from
The college years, a couple from old jobs. On some days your
Mother. On some days your neighbor. On others, your sisters,
Cousins. And on some days, your daughters.
So whether they've been your friend for 20 minutes or 20 years,
AND ONLY IF YOU'D LIKE TO, pass this on to the women who have been
Placed in your life to make a difference, and don't forget to send
It back to the one who gave it to you, if they have made a
Difference in your life. Life is too short for drama & petty things, so
Kiss slowly, laugh insanely, Love truly and forgive quickly.

Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says I'll try again tomorrow.

There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.
