Not too long ago, a girlfriend of mine was telling me that a person should be able to count their closest girlfriends on one hand (I think she read it in an article or something). When I sat down and thought about it, it is true. I have five women that I completely treasure. They are made up of friends and family members and they mean the world to me. I constantly pour into them and they constantly pour into me. These are the women I laugh, cry, and share all of life's moments. They know the nitty gritty of my life as a women, mother, and wife (and they still love me :) ). I don't feel like I have to impress them or keep up with their standards. I love to share moments of laughter with them (you know, the kind of laughter that makes you almost wet your pants and makes your side hurt). They are my "first responders", cheerleaders, and my faithful prayer warriors.
They are my Fabulous, Fantastic, Forever Five and I am blessed to have them in my live!
