I love, love, LOVE, the women in my life! Whether it’s my mom, my besties, my neighbors…I love them all.
I have girlfriends who I have known for more than 20 years. Three to be exact!

I have brand new girlfriends I just met in the last month.
I have girlfriends I worked with at different radio stations in three different cities.

I have girlfriends I met though Women in Radio dinners that we do every few months.
I have girlfriends with whom I am sadly, no longer friends.
I have girlfriends I met because because of Breast Cancer.

I have girlfriends because of my job and in spite of my job.
I have girlfriends because of my children.
And you know what? I love them all. Truly. I love them all because every single one has brought something significant to my life. Whether it is happiness, pain, joy or sadness, I am glad to have known them. Even the few I have lost contact with either because we lost touch, because I had to walk away or because they did. Regardless, I am thankful for the time I did have with them and the memories that were created.
A dear girlfriend once said to me…”Friends come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime” and boy, is she right! All of these women past or present, have helped shape who I am today and for that I say, thank you God!
