Gratitude Friday: Girlfriends

May there always be work for your hands to do, may your purse always hold a coin or two. May the sun always shine on your windowpane, may a rainbow be certain to follow each rain. May the hand of a friend always be near you, may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you. ~ Irish Blessing

Spent some quality girlfriend time savoring a long-awaited reunion dinner. We toasted to us – having known each other for over 40 years. Seen each other through divorces, deaths, children’s births, serious health and emotional issues, renewed romances, memorable trips, momentous decisions, and many hysterically funny and sometimes embarrassing situations. As one friend put it, there are things you can tell your girlfriends that you can’t tell your partner or your family.

The kind of friendship you speak of which weathers the good and bad in our lives is such a rich irreplaceable history. They are gifts aren't they? glad you were able to spend some time with good girlfriends.

Hi Flygirl, it is so special and also so necessary to have special friends in our lives. You describe the reasons why so beautifully. They really do see us through some tough times and they make our good times even better.

It sounds like you had a wonderful reunion dinner get together.

Thank you for this wonderful post and I really like that photo too. So cute! Have a wonderful weekend!

Oh those Irish blessings are so full of wisdom, aren't they?! I'm glad you had some time with your dear girlfriend! That relationship truly is something special and precious and unlike any other. I too am incredibly grateful for my "BFF"! :)
