Tuesday Tunes — Friends and Wine

I am very blessed to have really good friends. The kind of friends that have my back. Friends that I could call up and ask for help of any kind and they’d give it to me. Friends that make me laugh. Friends that truly get me. Friends that love me for me.

I have always been lucky enough to have lots of friends. Even when I was a chubby, acne-filled, gap-toothed, boy haircut, too tall for my age little girl, I always had friends. Even in dreaded junior high. But I don’t think I was a really good friend until I was an adult. I think I was a good friend back then…but not a true friend like I am now. I understand what a true friend is now; I’m not sure you can understand that when you’re young.

I’ve managed to surround myself with true friends as well. They make me laugh, they share a cry, they love my kids, my husband and especially me. I feel supported and respected and cherished. I am so thankful for my friendships. I don’t know what I’d do without them.

Friendships are so important; there’s just something about girlfriend time that can’t be replaced. I need it; I crave it; It makes me feel better. Last Friday we had our monthly girls’ night; my friend designed a scavenger hunt and we had a blast. We drove around town in teams looking for all sorts of things — a stranger jogging, a misspelled sign, helped someone with their groceries, a tatoo of someone’s name, honey colored eyes…all sorts of crazy things. We ran around in the rain, we laughed and we felt young and free. My friends always make me feel completed.

After a rough week, or just a regular week of motherhood, good friends and a glass of wine always make me feel like I’m wrapped up in a warm hug.

Thank you friends!
