Friendships are funny things, aren’t they?
I’m fortunate enough to have friends all over the world. I’ve mentioned before, that I’ve always been fortunate to make good friends wherever I go. There are people around the world who at one point or another I have been super close to, who I have lost touch with. While it makes me sad, I know it is destined to happen. When you put so much distance between people, it is really difficult to maintain that level of intimacy in a friendship that is so easy to cultivate when together.
But, like most people, I think the world of my friends. Their happiness is my happiness, their sorrows are my sorrows. I hope my friends know that no matter what is going on in their lives they can talk to me about it and I will celebrate, commiserate, or cry with them, whatever the occasion calls for.
There are a few times in life when you really get to find out who your true friends are. And I know everyone I count as one of my friends is around for the long-haul.
Growing up, as a golfer, most of my friends were guys. It was just the nature of the sport. But I love that as a grown woman, a mom, a sister, and daughter, I have so many fantastic women in my life who I can call at the drop of the hat and have a laugh, a cry, or just a good conversation with. Women need women, I think.
On that note, my 2.5 year old needs me, and needs a “tull” (cuddle).
