Today, I went and saw Valentine’s Day with Sarah, Cherity (my sister-in-law), Rebecca, and one of Rebecca’s friends. It was an eclectic little group (different friends from different parts of my life), but it was so fun. I love that I’m friends with my sister-in-law. It has been so fun having them live up here this year. She is one of my favorite people.
I was talking to Rebecca the other day about sometimes I struggle a little bit with having different groups of friends in different parts of my life because I don’t always know how to combine them and I love them all. And there are some of them that I see so infrequently that I want to just spend time with that one individual and vice versa.
So here’s the conclusion I’ve come to…my really good girlfriends are the types of friends who get that. I’ve never been the type who feels like I need to be invited to everything everyone has because I totally understand how it goes. It’s not that I don’t love every one of my girlfriends, but good relationships aren’t built when there are 10 people at every gathering you ever have. And I think that’s the beauty of getting older and building lifelong friendships. I have stopped feeling insecure about my relationships with people and it’s fantastic.
Feb. 12 – I love my girlfriends!
