I am just glad…oh SO glad, to be counted among them. You are an unspeakable blessing. I'm with you on this 100%…My girlfriends make my life sweet. For all these reasons you've outlined here and more. I continue to thank God, every single day, for the blessing of friendship.
Beautiful!!! The older I get, the more I cherish my girlfriends and my time with them! Thank you God for wonderful girlfriends!
Time with them does become more precious, doesn't it, Tracy?!?! I totally understand that, especially knowing what your season of life looks like right now 🙂 BUT…I can absolutely, positively promise you this: IF you'll keep making the effort it takes to get together with and to nurture like-hearted, fun, God-honoring friendships with your girlfriends…you will reap AND give some extraordinarily beautiful blessings. It will be MORE than worth your time, attention, and care. Love to you!
The other day, I had a major heart to heart with a dear friend who is mired in a full-fledge mid-life crisis. I didn't remind her, but she helped ground me during a similiar moment a few years back. True friends allow us to be about as bare nekkid emotionally as we can be with anyone on this earth and still love us, pray for us and most impt. keep their mouths shut tight. True godly friends are some of life's most precious treasures. Love this post. jamie
Thanks, Jamie. You're so right about the gift of true godly friends. Women who sharpen us are a beautiful thing! And, as far as being "bare nekkid" (smile), I don't think there's anything I appreciate more in a friend than transparency. Have you ever noticed how much easier it is to be real with someone who is real with you?! It's as if transparency begets transparency. As women, I think we're so apt to only want to show what we think we make others think well of us. Which ends us kicking us in the tail, of course :o) We end up feeling unknown, while it's our fault that we're only revealing parts of ourself :o( Silly girls.BTW, I'm grateful we've become online friends :o) Thank you for that blessing!
