Girlfriends

I am convinced that women without a sister need good girlfriends more than those women with a sister. I say that because I never had a sister. I loved my two brothers and my brother that is 3 years younger than me did share my "secrets" when we were growing up. But, there is just nothing like a sister or a good girlfriend to "share your heart" with, to laugh with, to cry with, to shop with, to share recipes with and all that other "girly stuff."

The Lord has blessed me with some very special friends along the way and I am so grateful for them. Each of them bring something different into my life and that is what makes each of them special.

I think men often wonder about women and their friendships. They don't quite understand what it is all about because men and their friendships are very different. Men don't pile
up and go places together, they don't talk on the phone, they don't go out to eat and to a movie together, they don't travel together (except for hunting trips). Yes, men, I think, are really missing out when it comes to friendships. But, the Lord made us that way for a purpose. I'm not sure what it is, but I sure am glad that I am a woman and I'm so grateful for all the wonderful girlfriends He has given me.

And, when you find a friend that "sticketh closer than a brother" then you have found yourself a real friend.

  1. I have two sisters but they both live in Idaho---and you are right, I long for that close sister relationship from someone closer to me! You are blessed with so many close friends!
