I love being a mother and wife. I really do. (And here it comes…)
…I also need friends! For me personally, I need my girlfriends. I have been fortunate in my life to have wonderful friends from high school, college and friends from neighborhoods and work. They know who they are. The ones where time means nothing. We pick up right where we left off. I love these friends.
I want to introduce you to a special group of friends. I became friends with these ladies at the gym. Now, we know we are TRUE friends because we see each other at the insane hour of 5AM. Yes. 5AM. (that is not a typo) No make-up, unkempt hair, sometimes not matching and frequently on the smelly side. Unconditional friendship is what I call that.
I have learned many lessons from these friends. I have laughed with these ladies while lifting weights. Poured my heart out while on the stairclimber. Cried while running on the treadmill. Jumped for joy to celebrate success and hugged during the hard times. They have each touched my heart as have many of you reading this. Yes, you know who you are. I wish I had a picture of each of you to post.
I am moving away from these ladies and many of you, but friendships know no miles.
A mama needs her peeps to be happy….and I am a happy mama indeed.
