This week I am joining in at Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop.
2.) Share one of your favorite things.
I can hardly believe that it is less than two years since my life was forever changed. It seems like I have known her for a lifetime.
A mutual acquaintance asked me to reach out to her; to help her feel welcome.
She was going to be moving close to me and is an army wife. They were being transferred to my neck of the woods.
We talked a little bit through the magic of the internet but we had yet to meet. I invited her to a church gathering that we were having and even though she had never met me, she came.
I should have known then.
But I did not know. How could I know the depths to which our friendship would grow?
I could never have imagined how much this woman would become a part of my life and how much she would change it in such a short time.
Because of my home life and the dysfunction I grew up in, I never really had any close girlfriends. I never had a girlfriend who I would stay up late with talking about boys and the latest fashions. I never had a girlfriend to run to when I needed a hug or a shoulder to cry on.
I never knew what I was missing until I found it.
In a very short time, I have found that girlfriend.
She is the girlfriend that I can stay up late with talking about
boys and fashion our daily lives. She is the girlfriend I can run to when I need a hug or shoulder to cry on. She is the girlfriend I can run to when I need advice. She is the girlfriend I can share a pan of bread pudding with and not feel guilty. She is the girlfriend who let me be in the delivery room when her 3rd child was born. She is the girlfriend who can give me a slap of reality when I need it the most. She is the girlfriend that can brighten my day with one simple text. She is the girlfriend who knows me better than anyone else besides my husband.
She is my girlfriend. She is my confidant. She is my soul mate for life.
She has become one of my favorite things.
