|Zia & Em @ bump before going out|
Friday night we took Emmerson out for her first girls night! Here she is all dressed in pink with her adorable & yes obnoxious hat that her zia (me) gave her. Who else would inflict such a fashion statement on a 5 month old!!?
It really is amazing the comfort of girlfriends and I honestly love passing it along to the next generation of little ladies. I could have a horrible day but then I get a hug and a kiss from one of my girls and instantly feel uplifted. I am blessed to have many of the same girlfriends from the age of 14 as well as many other sets of friends that I have cultivated along the way. It is from the love of my friends and family that I am able to find strength each day - to chin up and smile and know that I am loved when I need it most. I haven't felt so courageous lately so luckily, I've had my girls to stand behind me and let me know that I will make it through.
We often take those who have been in our lives the longest for granted so, if there is anyone out there actually reading this.... take a moment to call or email or send a card to let those who are in your heart know that you cherish them. They may have been a friend for only a moment or a lifetime but if they are important to you, don't hesitate to let them know. Nothing can ever be lost in telling someone that you care about them. xo
