Last night I had dinner with 4 girls that I’ve known for (ahem) over 25 years (OK, maybe 30).
We’ve grown up together.
We’ve seen each other through everything – bad grades, bad boyfriends, good grades, good boyfriends, dances/proms, school projects, college acceptances, meeting of the husbands, pregnancies, moves, jobs – everything.
We have been trying to make it our mission to meet up once every 2 months. We have 12 kids between the 5 of us, so we know we’re all busy. But it’s something that’s good for the soul. I mean, really good for the soul.
I’ve been working like a dog for weeks and weeks and haven’t had a time to just go out and unplug. And when I say unplug… I mean from social media, work, emails, videos, everything. There’s something really comforting about being with the kinds of girls you don’t need to impress. They love you for who you are… because there’s a history there.
I had been looking forward to April 15th for weeks.
I need this.
And you might, too. 🙂
