Oh my goodness. What a weekend it has been! One of my greyhounds ate some Advil (toxic to dogs) and spent the night in the animal hospital. Poor guy- I believe he is on the mend now. It brought me back to several years ago when my dog Claudia ate an entire box of dark chocolate covered expresso beans. What drama that was!
Today I am over on Root of She where I wrote a post about friendship between women. (Hint: We are awesome.)
Here is part of it:
In the media, friendships between women are often portrayed as caddy and insecure. My experience is that friendships between women are full of depth, gentleness, grace and wisdom. Girlfriends listen empathetically with their hearts wide-open. They are not afraid to hear pain. A friend holds the painful stories of other women, quietly and lovingly. This makes the pain lessen and love grows stronger. Girlfriends create a safe place to share heartbreaks, jealousies, anger and fear without being judged or criticized. My girlfriends teach me over and over that I am okay just as I am, even when, in my darkest moments I am certain that I am not. They remind me that I am always loved, no matter what.
Tomorrow I will have a Pay it Forward post inspired by my dear friend, Julia and her blog, The Painted Path.
