I had dinner with one of my dearest friends last night. We laughed, we cried, we shared our fears and our dreams. It was better then Cats. We exchanged holiday gifts. We agreed that 2011 is going to be OUR year. And I actually really do believe that.
I think that making and sustaining friendships is no easy task. These past few years, I've had to cut ties and rebuild bridges. I finally feel as though I am in a place where I am confident in my relationships, that I'm sure of the people I'm surrounding myself with. As the holiday cards and gifts begin to trickle in, I find myself feeling incredibly loved and very emotional.
2011 holds many promises, but no matter what happens, my life will be good because my friends are in it.
I have more wonderful women in my life than I do fingers and toes. These women will be my bridesmaids. They will be 'Aunts' to my children. They will hold me when I cry and celebrate with me when I succeed. Among them is a mentor, a big sister, a childhood sweetheart, a good luck charm, and of course, many a sorority sister.
You know who you are, but you'll never know quite how thankful I am for you.
