Nothing can compare with or replace a great relationship between a husband and wife.

But I would argue that the same can be said about the bond that can be found between women.

I have had friends that I have known all of my life. Some friends who I at one point considered one of my “best”, I haven’t seen in years. Some I have known since birth or early childhood, and they are still a big part of my life. As an adult, I’ve been blessed to have been surrounded by friends who are nothing short of amazing. I’ve mentioned her before, but my bff and cousin happens to be one of those friends, and the “ringleader” who introduced me to a small group of women who have become such a great source of support for me. We don’t get together very often (except during volleyball season, when a get together once a week is guarenteed 🙂 ), but when we do, it’s like we didn’t skip a beat. They are such a great group of women whose ability to make me laugh and have a wonderful time is greatly appreciated.

Since my marriage to Greg, I have been introduced to a number of new people. It’s strange how there are people you may know for years, and while you’re friends, that deep bond never really developes. But then there are those people who you instantly know you can trust and even if you don’t see them much, you know they are truly your friend. I’ve always loved the expression, “kindred spirits” (which I got from reading Anne of Green Gables), and that’s what I feel like I’ve found in a few of these new found friends. Last week I was able to get together with a few of them at a dinner as well as a Halloween party. Yahoo!

Whether they are once a week at a v-ball game, or fewer and farther between, I love the time that I am able to spend with the important women in my life, and I am lucky to call them friends. You know who you are… know I am grateful to you and I love you! Xoxo!

    First of all, I LOVE Anne of Green Gables! I always had a crush on Gilbert. ;o) But yes, kindred spirits, indeed. Isn’t that funny, though, about meeting people that you feel you connect with immediately? I’m so happy we’re friends!! Loved this post. :o)
