I know it is true for myself, that I would have never thought I could be this strong, or this much of an advocate for anyone else. My calm moments and my strength surprises me, as does the level to which I can feel sorry for myself in those fleeting moments.
But after sharing our current stories and struggles, and sharing some wine and food, we all came to talk about a few of the good things going on. A few of those gems that make our lives our own. Feeding our passions or own needs in some ways and really feeling how special that can be. We all fight for balance in our lives, and sometimes we get to look at both the good and the tough times with friends who really get us. Those moments are priceless.
Girlfriends are a gift, and usually right when you need them !
