i thank God for my grrrlfriends!
the older I get, the less friends i have who are single and/or otherwise unattached. i count all my friends as assets beyond measure, but today i offer up particular thanks that i still have those who really are my rowing companions in the increasingly shrinking boat of 30-something singleness. i am really, terribly, & insanely grateful that we have each other.
my friends anna (on the left) and elyse (the brazilian beauty in the norwegian sandwich) are two such friends.
i met them both through work & both have blessed & continue to bless me with their friendship, humor, generosity, and willingness to stick beside me whether it's an i-need-a-truckload-of-kleenex kind of day, or an oh-my-gosh-i-think-i-laughed-so-hard-i-just-ruptured-a-vital-internal-organ kind of day (& everything in between).
when elyse was in town last week (she works in our corporate office in the seattle area), she & anna & i had an impromptu dinner at my place. we enjoyed food, good wine, and ridiculous amounts of laughter (as you can see).
so this post is a shout out!! to these two incredible ladies, these two with whom i can be completely unrestrained and unselfconscious, & who won't hold it against me the next day. if i have to be in this little boat right now, i'm so very glad it's with you.
By yourself you're unprotected. With a friend you can face the worst. Can you round up a third? A three-stranded rope isn't easily snapped.
