This weekend I had a chance to spend some extended time with a couple of girlfriends. We’ve known each other for decades now, and despite distance and busyness, we always seem to be able to pick up right where we left off. It’s tough to carve out time for friendships at this stage of life, but it’s so good for my soul to be with people who know all the good, bad, and embarrassing bits about me and love me anyway. I hope you’ll take some time to nourish the friendships in your life this week. It’s always worth the effort!
