Thankful Thursday


I don't know who is hosting this week...maybe Julie?? But I definitely wanted to participate...so here is my dose of gratitude....


Today I am grateful for my girlfriends....from my very bestest- ever friend, to my newest girlfriends and my newest bloggy girlfriends. I feel so honored to call some wonderful woman friends....to laugh with, to cry with and everything in between. My relationships with my girlfriends are very important to me and I value our friendships. I am emotionally, mentally, and spiritually healthier because of my girlfriends.


Tonight my husband and I were talking about this subject. He thinks it is more important for woman to have these relationships than it is for men, especially as we "mature" because our husbands stop listening to us!!! I had to laugh..he may be partially right....but I don't care.....I love my girlfriends....you bring light into my life.


Hopefully there other Thankful Thursday posts out there...let me know so I can visit!!

This is so true!!! I love my girlfriends too!! I have had the same girlfriends for years that have seen me through college, marriages, child bearing, divorces, and dieting. AND they're still here. Wow. Great Post Alison!

Lovely post, Girlfriends are so important. I miss mine who are far away the other side of the Atlantic but I'm enjoying getting to make more in real life and in the blog world!

Terrific post! I will be posting later today sometime for Thankful Thursday, unless, of course, I just copy and paste yours!

Have a great day.

I so agree. I'm going to have lunch tomorrow with three women I went to high school with that I am still friends with. Now, our children get to grow up together. It means the world to me.

That's really sweet. I tell ya, nothing can take the place of a really good girlfriend!

This is definitely one of those areas where men and women are different... seems like men bond over shared activities (golf buddies, watching a game...) whereas women bond over life experience/stage of life things... definitely something to be thankful for. xxoo

Yes, girlfriends. They really do have a way of making us calm down and collect ourselves...or get totally wild and crazy...or become all gossippy...whatever it is we need, girlfriends help us find it. Great post!

girlfriends are a very important force in our lives!!! because, they are on the same plateau!!
my husband doesn't understand that, even though i met some of you through blogging, that you are still my friends. he doesn't understand that, even though i can't see you and touch you...that there still can be a relationship!! but, blogging friendships can be just as close as our real life,seeing and touching, friendships!!
xoxo...and you...are my friend!!
