For My Girlfriends

You know why...






Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all out, just as they are, chaff and grain together, certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and with a breath of kindness blow the rest away. ~Dinah Craik

Friendship isn't a big thing - it's a million little things. ~Author Unknown

The friend who holds your hand and says the wrong thing is made of dearer stuff than the one who stays away. ~Barbara Kingsolver

Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down. ~Oprah Winfrey

I read this post in Reader and somehow didn't see the Kelly Corrigan video. So I went searching for the link to it to leave in my comment. Think I clicked over and, well, there it was! I love that essay. It perfectly sums up why my friends rock my world.
