Thank you for being a friend…

There are so many things that I thank God for every day and one of the biggest is my friends.  I am so lucky to have some of the best and most amazing friends in the world.  It’s hard to label one as a “best” friend because they are all the best.  Each one makes a different part of my soul smile.  They all know different stories, remember different things and laugh for different reasons.  They all cry for the same reasons, though.  They are strong and beautiful, kind and loving.  And I could not live a day without knowing they are always there- for a hug, a laugh, a cry, or a bottle of wine (or pitcher of margaritas), as needed.  Having these women in my life makes the rest of my life bearable at times.  Overseas, it’s hard to make lasting friendships.  When I meet new people, I find myself thinking, “I don’t need any more friends.”   I know this isn’t the greatest attitude, but it’s really true- I have made a lot of amazing friends.  Sure, I have room for more, but it’s kind of a hassle.  It takes a long time to build relationships like the ones that I already have in place.  And a lot of times, people just aren’t around for that long.  And I already have friends.

BUT… I wish my friends were all friends.  I mean, my friends are friends, but not really without me around.  They might send a little message on facebook to each other now and again.  When I’m home for Christmas or the summer, they will probably hang out with me at least once all together, either as a hello, good-bye, or a birthday party.  But I don’t think they talk much while I’m away.  And I kind of wish they did.  It would be nice to have a “group” of girls who were truly a group, not just a group because they all happen to know me (I sound quite self-important today, but I’m not trying to be).

If you can’t tell, I went to see Sex and the City 2 last night.  It made me miss ‘my’ girls.  It made me long for that type of group dynamic.  Mostly, though, it made me super excited to get home.

So… thank you for being a friend.  You know who you are (and the word ‘friend’ also applies to other people who usually go by the name ‘Sissy,’ just so we’re clear).

  1. I always wanted a girl team like that. I honestly think it's rare, but the entertainment industry has created this fantasy.

    The closest I ever had to a gang like that was more like Seinfeld. A co-ed group of misfits. 🙂

  2. My “girl-gang” in Florida was actually three guys. I wonder when I stopped having female friends. SATC makes me completely jealous of that kind of friendship, too!
