Give your best friend a hug today!

For the most part I am a pretty strong individual. Sensitive? Yes. But pretty strong and independent. Today I am having one of those days that I really need a girlfriend. I don't need any problems solved, I don't need a shoulder to cry on, I just crave that nurturing relationship that comes from having a good friend who shares in the same struggles that I do.

My husband is a GREAT best friend, he's my go-to man! There is something wonderful to be said about a great friendship with a fellow lady. I admire women who have close relationships with their sisters or have a best friend who lives right next door or really close that they can see everyday! If you have that, appreciate it, that is a fantastic gift that God has given you in your life. What a joy!

Some of the happiest memories I have are spent with great women. Laughing with them, crying with them, sharing hopes and dreams with them. It's wonderful and today, I wish I had more of that in my life. I'm feeling a little weak today, a little envious....

Hug your best girlfriend today!
Much love,
