These are some of the women in my life that will always be there for me, no matter where they are.
We have gotten together (there are other women, but not everyone can make it every year) each year since our husbands left seminary. For me, it seems like the visits get better and better. We laughed harder (I believe the word riotous might apply here) than I remember laughing ever before. Our time together was richer to me than ever before. It might be because of the year that I've had, or because I had to miss last time...this get-together was that much sweeter. When you have friends that know you, pretty much inside and out, and they love you anyway? What a wonderful blessing.
These ladies are hilarious. And smart. And genuine. And beautiful. The real deal in every way. And I have the privelege of being called their friend. It is a beautiful thing, indeed.
