“Think back to some of the early healthy friendships you formed. While growing up, these friends became a home base you could return to — your safety net, your defender, your shoulder to cry on, and your source of humor. Flash forward to the present: If you’ve been lucky enough to hold on to these relationships over the years — the people you’ve belly laughed with, shared dreams, disappointments and dilemmas with, took adventures with, and celebrated all of your major life events with — you are blessed with the gift of friendship.” ~Tara Rummell Berson
At this time of year especially, I’m reminded of how lucky I’ve been in life. I’m thankful for so many things, but in this personal essay that is featured in the anthology, “In the Moment“, I talk about how blessed I’ve been with true friendships. I’ve had the great pleasure of acquiring many beautiful relationships throughout my life, but I focus on a particular group of girls I met almost 25 years ago.
I hope you that you’ll feel inspired to share this story with a friend, or group of friends, who you feel the same way about. Here’s a scanned copy of the story if you have trouble reading the images below.
