I dedicate wonderful Sundays in which I lounge around the house drinking English Breakfast tea, and reading charming and lovely blogs to my best friends. This is the best way to spend a Sunday. The only thing that could make this better are 4 hour lunches with fierce, beautiful women who inspire me. Some of the best people in my life who get me through rough patches and carry me on the shoulders of victorious, magnificent moments.
Dear Besties, J, S, M, K, R, and L,
Through almost 29 years, I’ve gone through a lot of friendships. Some have stayed, some have gone, some have come AND gone and come back again, yet there are several friendships that have endured, or have sprouted from seemingly no place, and have given me so much blessing, it feels as though we’ve been friends through the ages. At this age where I am closing in on the middle section of my life, you find it necessary to cut the chaff, the friends who no longer invest time in you, or time into your relationship. You find your circle tightening, finding places only for those of the most extraordinary qualities, the most phenomenal value, those who reciprocate emotional investment. Time becomes off the essence, and you want nothing spared for anything but the best people.
You are my best people.
You have no idea how much I appreciate you, love you, and always miss you when we’re not together or talking. Even in silence, distance or time, your presence in my life has given me strength, courage and happiness to face every day and each challenge.
You are the best, most brilliant, clever, beautiful women I have ever known.
Aren’t best friends wonderful? Do you find your circle tightening? Who are the best friends who get you through the day?
