I am a firm believer that every woman needs her girlfriends. I realized that having a husband is awesome and it comes with many glorious benefits and pleasures that no other relationship on earth can give you…if you know what I mean. For those mothers out there you too would agree that your children bring that special something into your life that is beautiful and precious. The gathering of family members is priceless when the people who watched you grow up start telling stories about the days of your youth. Today I want to share with the world a few of my “AWESOMSAUCE” Girlfriends!
These special creatures were handpicked by me! They are not related to me. I didn’t give birth to them. I didn’t commit to stay with them through sickness or health in front of God and hundreds of people. Nope, these women are all my doings and I am pretty proud of my lil pickin’s! I put together a little list to back up my original statement of why I believe ”EVERY WOMAN NEEDS HER GIRLFRIENDS!”
Who is going to comb the shopping racks with you for hours and say “Quoot!” a hundred times only to walk out with a pair of earrings and think it was a great shopping day?
Only your girlfriends can appreciate the long version of the story without getting irritated with you and want you to get to the point.
Who but these sparkling gems will treat your temporary hair crisis as if you are going into major heart surgery and will gather on the prayer line for divine intervention?
Who else except these beautiful beings will fly in from another state to comfort you in the most difficult times, celebrate you in the best of times? By gollie these gals will even take a road trip just to offer a hug, support, love, and remind you that you are not alone.
Your girlfriends will challenge you to get back up when you have fallen and remind you how strong you are in the time of weakness.
WHO BUT YOUR GIRLFRIENDS can have “intense fellowship” (a disagreement/argument) and still come over for spaghetti dinner like nothing ever happened?
Only these remarkable spirits will celebrate your victories like it was their own, accompany you on great adventures, throw surprise parties, smile when you smile, cry when you cry, and most importantly lead you back to God and keep you in their prayers.
Dear Friends (you know who you are),
Thank you for believing in the call and purpose of God on my life. Your prayers, love, giving, and encouragement has afforded me this great opportunity to share myself with others. Thank you my precious priceless princesses for freely sharing yourself with little ole' me. I love you and praying for you. I'm eternally grateful.
I would love to hear from you! Why do you need your girlfriends?
Attach a photo of those special lovelies that you handpicked to call friend! If you like this post please Share, Comment, and Like.
