A few weeks ago I wrote a post about how I sometimes feel like I missed the boat with regards to being a part of a group of girlfriends. I was overwhelmed by the response I received from many, many women who felt the same way I did (if you read the post, you’ll understand). I kinda thought I was the only one who felt that way, but apparently I’m just one of many.
I once had a short email message forwarded to me that discussed the importance of having girlfriends, especially as you transition from each phase of life into the next and get older. For the life of me I can’t seem to find it–it’s a mother and daughter talking on a porch–but the message of it has stayed with me, and as I continue to settle into our new city I hope to find my group of girlfriends here.
Not long after I wrote that post my sister sent me a wonderful video that talks about girlfriends. The speaker, Kelly Corrigan, addresses a group of women and in a 5 minute blurb she’ll make you laugh, reflect, and maybe cry (I did) as you think about your life and the people in it. It’s really a great message, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. :)
