Close Friends are truly life’s treasures. Sometimes they know us better than we know ourselves. They are there to guide & support us, to share our laughter and our tears. Their presence reminds us that we are never really alone.
Vincent Van Gogh

The bike ride I took with Terri and how we laughed at lunch that day … the time Deana, Rhonda and I found funny stuff at a flea market … the car ride where Barb and I laughed until we almost … well, you know! There something about this Friendship Quote that resonates with great moments with girlfriends.
Life is just a series of moments. Some are not-so-special – running errands, cleaning, driving, etc. Some are necessary – working, emailing, paying bills (definitely not my favorite moments!). And some are extraordinary – like seeing the smile on your BFF’s face when she opens your thoughtful girlfriend gift, the day you went shopping together and bought ‘those boots,’ or being wrapped up in the hug of a true friend who knows you need it.
TODAY – Stop and think about the moments that are special to you … time with girlfriends to share your lives.

Imagine yourself in the photo here – on a snowy night, among towering pines, shivering from the frigid temperatures. In this scenario, your world would be focused on that cabin and ‘finding shelter.’ Getting in from the cold. The welcoming warmth of a glowing cabin would beckon you.
This Emily Dickinson quote speaks to me, as I hope it does to you. We’ve all been there – lost, alone, in the dark. We’ve all longed to belong somewhere and be surrounded by the comforts we crave. Warm, safe, comfortable, happy.

Ever feel so cold, that you just can’t warm up? That no amount of hot chocolate, or length of time in a hot shower, feel like they can melt the cold that reaches to your core?
This time of year is tough on many of us. The cold temps, short days, and long winter nights can chill us both physically and emotionally. We know Spring will come (right!?!) but, for now, it’s dang cold and it’s hard to see past the visible breath we take.
That’s why this Friendship quote is so lovely. It’s a reminder that we have the power to bring warmth into a friend’s frigid day. Each of us have the warmth of sunshine in the kindness we show to others. We get to be a friend’s heat source in a time of low temperatures and darkness.
TODAY – Warm a friend’s day with ACTS OF KINDNESS. Share a thoughtful note or message. Extend a voice of warmth and thoughtfulness.
SHARE WITH A FRIEND WHO COULD USE SOME SUNSHINE IN HER DAY!
Be warm girlfriend! For more girlfriend inspiration on KINDNESS:
