Whatever you say,

does it really matter?

GIRLS IN MY CIRCLE

1 Comment

When I was little, I used to believe in the concept of one best friend, and then I started to become a woman. And then I found out that if you allow your heart to open up, God would show you the best in many friends.
One friend is needed when you’re going through things with your man.
Another friend is needed when you’re going through things with your mom.
Another will sit beside you in the bleachers as you delight in your children and their activities.
Another when you want to shop, share, heal, hurt, joke, or just be.
 
One friend will say, “Let’s cry together,”
another, “Let’s fight together,”
another, “Let’s walk away together.”
 
One friend will meet your spiritual need,
another your shoe fetish,
another your love for movies,
another will be with you in your season of confusion,
another will be your clarifier,
another the wind beneath your wings. 
But whatever their assignment in your life,
on whatever the occasion,
on whatever the day,
or wherever you need them to meet you with their gym shoes on and hair pulled back,
or to hold you back from making a complete fool of yourself…
those are your best friends.
 
It may all be wrapped up in one woman,
but for many, it’s wrapped up in several…
one from kindergarten,
one from high school,
several from the college years,
a couple from old jobs,
on some days your mother,
on some days your neighbor,
on others, your sisters,
and on some days, your daughters.

But whoever you are and no matter what role you play, know that you are my best friend.

One thought on “GIRLS IN MY CIRCLE

  1. Wow… you put that perfectly into words… People always speak of their, and ask about mine, to which I always reply, I have 8 of them. And then several close friends following behind… Almost always they tell me that a best friend is the “best” friend and that you couldn’t have 8 but only 1… and I never could explain that each one is different in their own way, but all considered as my best friends… I couldnt live without any of them, and would do anything in the world for them…
    I know exactly what you are trying to say with this, and it was very beautifully put…
