Friends...Where Would I Be Without Them?

Posted by on December 29, 2019 at 11:50 AM

It seems to me that the older we get, the less often we get to see our friends. That's what they say, anyway. I certainly hope it isn’t  really true of  gals in our Women Growing Gracefully group! Instead, their vision s to welcome and encourage new friendships among retired and semi-retired acquaintances.

We’re the group of pals who  remind about what we're all about, who we are and who seem to know us better than we even know ourselves.

Here’s to the treasured friendships that last, to the gals who makes us laugh until we cry and who  let us peel back the many layers of our personalities.

Here’s to friends who I know will pick up their phone when it rings in the middle of the night if they're needed.

Here’s to friends with the willingness to expose their darkest secrets or greater fears to each other, in trust.

Here’s to friends who let us be whoever we are to them and they will accept us anyway. 

I love this quote from Carrie Jacobs Bond; “And we find at the end of a perfect day the soul of a friend we’ve made”. Whether a friend is with us for a short time or for years, these bonds serve as a source of wisdom, comfort and distraction.

Where would I be without them?

Where would we be without them?
