On Friends

I immediately take a mental snapshot of the women in my life I love gathered in one place. Those friendships are love in action.

I hear the laughter, the voices, and the hum of conversation.
I feel the kindness, the patience, and the warmth of unconditional love.
I smell the joy, the beauty, and the determination of strength.
I know the thoughtful, inspiring, and smart foundation of women surrounding us.
I see the smiles, the hugs and the time just zipping by.
I enjoy the funny, silly, and witty moments that remind of us of our younger years.
I taste the familiar, the wonder and the bond of intimacy which connects us.

I breath in these moments which embed deep in my soul. Those moments become part of me.

Friends are amazing gifts from God. Through these women I have learned so much about myself. Each one challenges me to be a better me.

And I am so thankful for the friends He has given me the opportunity to grow, laugh, cry, talk, and share with. It is a richer, fuller, and more complete life with friends who are "sisters".
