Girlfriends


I am not sure where I am going with this post today so bear with me while I try to get it rolling.
I want to start by saying I am happy-YAY!
I have been working on a million things in the last year. You have read about most of it here but I am finally starting to feel the coming together of it.
A few weeks ago was school vacation and I was lucky enough to have the time to take it off to be with the kids. As a terrific side note I was able to spend time with all of my closest friends. We did kid stuff so they thought it was about them but really it is just as much about us getting together. We also got to sneak in grown up time with out them. By the end of the week I realized it was about the best week off I have ever had and I didn't even have to travel.
Last night I had a "date" with just 1 of my closest friends and I am more grateful for her than she probably knows. We laughed most of the night and that is exactly what I need in a friend. We know each other so well it is scary sometimes.
My childhood was whacked. Not bad but my memory was that we moved alot, I was a dorky shy girl who was always made fun of and I never felt like I belonged anywhere. I was always the new kid without a real place.
I am 39 years old and I think I have finally found my place. Sad isn't it? Why does it take this long? Why did I allow myself to feel so displaced for so long?
I am not there yet-not at the end of the road-are we ever? But I guess I just feel like I have the people in my life I need and I am grateful for them.
So girls I guess this is a Thank you post to you for being the best friends I could ask for. I hope you can tolerate me for 40 more years because I plan on being a pain in your ass for at least that long.
