I consider myself very fortunate in my friendships. I gave up on the notion of a bestie a long time ago. Now my circle is full of a group of special women, who enrich my live on a variety of different levels. There is the shoulder to cry on, the comedienne; the counsellor, the flake.
This past weekend I enjoyed a visit from a long-time friend, who is a combination of most elements. She has helped me gain perspective with a voice of reason. She has calmed me and supported me.
She also has the wonderful ability of making me laugh regularly and reminding me that it's okay to be a little silly sometimes. She loves life and people and I feel blessed to count her as a friend.
Our time together Saturday involved an event that put us in contact with one of my new friends — a solid, no-nonsense sort who offers me a little grounding when needed. With her I share a love of late nights and loud music, too.
It was awesome to spend an evening with these two special women, who truly would walk in when the rest of the world walks out on me. So in celebration of all the wonderful friends out there, in their many and varied forms, here are some awesome illustrations:
