We all that one friend , the one that is paying attention. The one that knows what you are not saying, what you need, when you need it most.
Well for me I have that and more. I am truly truly honestly blessed with the most amazing people in my life. My Soul Sisters !!!!!!!
I will always have my amazing friends from my childhood, make no mistake they are connected to me in ways that can never be severed! And this post is not to belittle those ladies in anyway. We live 400 miles apart l, and somehow these ladies show up from the distance when I need that smile, that text, that call.
But I also have that ONE friend here where I live , the one that makes me get out of my head and LIVE!! And I kind of feel like that she needs to be acknowledged, but y’all need to find a friend like this !!!
When I had more children later in my life, people stopped inviting us to do things. Most of our “ friends “ just left our lives. I understand why people get to the point where, they raised their kids, and don’t want kids around a whole lot. My younger kids are my heart and my life! I adore these creatures, but some people just don’t get it. I have been called crazy, insane, and absolutely nuts!! Just for being a mom.
I am blessed, and grateful that Lorri will include my kids!! Not only that, she will stop by to give them hugs. They are part of me and part of our friendship, as it should be. And that, is a precious gift!! She is that one person that will say ok you need to get out of the house and out of your head. She is the person that will say What the hell is going on??, And tell me to go eat some sage and grow my chakras !! LOL. That’s how she tells me I need to find balance.
That one friend that has not asked me to be more than who I am!! Find that for yourselves! Someone that is there everyday weather it’s a fun outing or cutting trees.
Life is hard enough with friends. I can’t even imagine what it’s like without a support system! So many people DO NOT have this! We need these people in our life!! We need the brutally honest friend, the people that know you are not fine! But make sure that these people accept all of you! We don’t get to choose who our friends’ family are. We just need to accept all of what makes these people who they are!!
Be mindful of the people that show up and drag you into living when you feel like only existing. Be grateful for that one person that says “ put pants on we are going on an adventure “!! These people are rare!! And we often forget to tell them how much they mean to us ! So here’s to my Sisters!! You MATTER!!!
Live Loud!! Be Happy!! Enjoy this life and the people that you so blessed to have along for the ride!! I know how truly blessed I am just for knowing these ladies. Even more so because they SHOW UP!!
