As I sit here this afternoon, having a conversation with a dear friend, something hit me.
I don’t have just friends anymore…the kind like when we’re teens, the ones we gab too and grab lunch with once a month.
The friends that I have now are so much more than just friends…they are family.
The women in my life are not just “girlfriends” I gab with about random things (although, don’t get me wrong..we do this too)…they are so much more. They are the women I look up to…the women I aspire to be.
One woman, in particular, has touched my life in a way that she will NEVER understand. Mainly, because I can’t express to her what she has done for me.
She is one of the greatest role models in my life. She is an amazing woman, wife, and mother! She is everything I aspire to be. She is independent and still very grounded in her roots and faith. She is strong, SO strong, yet still has the kindest heart. She works so hard for everything she has despite the hard times that life has handed her. She loves truly and honestly and holds nothing back. She is there for me at times she doesn’t even know I need her. She is beautiful in every sense of the word, both inside and out. She believes in me, even when I don’t believe in myself…and she chases her dreams every day.
Thank you so much for being such an outstanding woman, and thank you even more for being in my life. I look forward to all the crazy adventures we are going to share together! You’re one of a kind!
From one Daddy’s girl to another, you already knew that was true! 😉
So, here’s to you, Bobbie Sue, and to the very few real friends that I do have.
You know exactly who you are, and I am thankful for each and every one of you.
As we get older, we realize that the number of friends we have is irrelevant…it’s how amazing and bad ass they are.
