This afternoon I had lunch with a friend who I now know is as genuine as I ever believed she was. I feel such a sense of relief, like some type of weight has been lifted off my shoulders that I hadn’t even realized was there. She’s still as beautiful inside and out as she ever, maybe even more. The experience of life adds a dimension to beauty that can only be granted to those who walk the earth decade after decade.
We’ve known each other and been friends for over 34 years now and I am grateful in the depth of my soul that she is who I believed her to be. I almost feel giddy! She is another real soul, a woman journeying through life, learning, growing and becoming all she can become each day.
I am so grateful, did I say that already?
