Time to schedule some good solid time with your best friends, don’t you think? I mean, after a week like this with bombings, manhunts, explosions, etc., I’m pretty sure the entire country is looking for some time to rest, relax, reconnect, and remember the good times.
I know that after a normal-to-tough week, one in which I’m merely tired and cranky from not getting enough sleep and listening to three small children beg for my attention all at once, I always feel so much better after I’ve spent a few hours with my lady friends, chatting over dessert, laughing until we cry, and finishing entire thoughts without interruption. It has a way of smoothing out the frustrations and defraying my nerves in a way that few other things can.
And this past year I’ve had the opportunity to spend some time with some of my favorite people who are friends forever even though we can go years without seeing or talking to each other. They are people who have supported and counseled and cried and laughed with me when I’ve been most vulnerable. They are constant and loyal and true. Sometimes I think they have saved my sanity, and the truth is that maybe they have.
