Why having girlfriends is essential to life!

I love, love, LOVE, the women in my life! Whether it’s my mom, my besties, past and present girlfriends, neighbor…I love them all.

I have girlfriends who I have known for more than 20 years. Three to be exact!

I have girlfriends who also used to be neighbors.

I have girlfriends I worked with at different radio stations in three different cities.

I have girlfriends with whom I am sadly, no longer friends.

I have girlfriends I met because of Breast Cancer.

I have girlfriends I met through this website.

I have girlfriends I met at small groups through my Church.

I have girlfriends because of a job.

I have met new girlfriends who live in Orlando, (where we’re moving.) 

I have girlfriends because of my children.

And you know what? I love them all. Truly. New and old. 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. To have with them, life experiences. Even the few I have lost contact with either because we just 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 very 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!

XO Cindy

    I don’t have many girlfriends that I am actually friends with. I have been around the same group of people in my workplace for last 14 years. I find it hard to find true friends. I have one who is my best friend. I love her more than any friend I have ever had. We have known each other for 14 years. She is my soul mate. We were born in the same year and have so much in common. She is dependable and has the biggest heart of anyone I have ever known! So it’s not necessarily the number of friends but the quality of friends. True friends are hard to find. I feel blessed that I have that one who I can always count on and that’s good enough for me.

    So sweet! Love all the pics of you and your girls. Yeah, I don’t know what I’d do without the women in my life. I love supporting (and getting support) from my close girlfriends!

    I love this post

  • Linda Szymoniak says:

    This is something I’m really lacking right now. It seems that my closest friends have either moved out of the area, or we just don’t connect the way we once did. The friend who I was the closest to, and tried to help get through her cancer, has pulled away because she realized we have opposite views with regard to politics (and she’s obsessed about her side). You’d think that because I’m involved in animal rescue, I’d have a lot of friends. I meet so many others who are passionate about helping animals, but can tell you first hand, there are more clicks and if you don’t think exactly like them, you are pushed out. It’s especially sad because being involved in animal rescue is a hard, depressing thing and you really could use more friends to talk to and just go out and have fun with.
