Friends..

My girls..

Its this crazy thing that happens…the years, they just disappear. We all come with new stories and lace these tighter strands. There are new characters in our stories, our everyday people. I may not recognize them, but I know them through these shared moments with my girls.

We met again last night in a cozy corner booth, and life around us stands still. There isn’t another person in that place so far as we care…except for the waiter with the girly name who brings us the decadence of food not made by our own two hands.

There are few who can have me whispering in sadness, sharing grief and tears streaming .. who feel what I feel…with me. And it’s these women who un-do me and remind me I have muscles in this belly that can still hurt from a laugh that hasn’t been laughed in too long.

Our boundaries are widening yet again, this time out west. We’ve gone south twice and we’ve proved these strands only get stronger and fonder.

Lets test these western waters girls, we’re cowgirls after all 😉

Old Friends…

August 11, 2007

The moment I stepped out of my door onto the stoop, I dropped all my motherly ways behind me. Last night was a Girls Night.

Veggie tray in hand I made my way to the party and enjoyed every last minute of womanly ways. We ate, we hugged, we laughed and we ate some more. It was true bliss for a girl that had only been out once since the conception of the latest bun in the oven.

It’s been 9 years since we used to see each other daily, walking the halls of high school. Last night sitting in the living room, I had a moment ….

It was impossible to me that sitting there together, we were discussing labour stories and husbands, careers and life changes.

We somehow grew up.

Things have changed, some have moved far, far away, and others are right around the corner…but it never fails that when we meet up on these special evenings…it feels as though time has paused and allowed us the favour of our youth.

As friends get older and life gets more real, I more and more appreciate the girls that knew my carefree days, those days of finding ourselves and finding each other….and darn, I’m so glad we did.

Thanks for the giggles girls, let’s do it again real soon.
