Women in my life

Moving to the East Coast has really made me appreciate good friends, especially "girl friends". In college (and even through high school) I was so focused on school and dating that I don't think I fully appreciated how great women are. I look back now and wonder why I didn't take more time with great roommates and friends?! Well, I'm determined to make up for lost time. I've even starting adding friends to my blog now...big step I know. (Drop a line and say hello if I haven't added you and you wanna be friends.)

How can you top great associations with women? I cherish the phone calls with friends who don't live close, the lunches and outings with friends who do, and the blog/facebook/email thoughts that mean so much. I remember watching Anne of Green Gables with my sister Jesika, and though I was/am weirded out by the term, Anne was right in saying that we need "bosom friends."
So here's to sisters, girlfriends, talks about things that matter, my mother, my mother-in-law, roommates, companions, inspiration and comfort, running partners, crafting, giggling, and all those I've yet to meet, to all of you goes out a little quote that originally inspired this post.

“Oh, how we need each other. Those of us who are old need you who are young.
And, hopefully, you who are young need some of us who are old.
It is a sociological fact that women need women.
We need deep and satisfying and loyal friendships with each other.”
