This post is late tonight. I’ve spent two nights with a new puppy, which means sleep has been limited and fitful. It also means I’ve spent two days filled with puppy breath and potty training and puppy romps around the house.
But today, I had some me time. I spent the late afternoon and evening hanging with my girlfriends, my sassy chicks. They get me. I can let my hair down and let the wine and sarcasm flow.
We all need those friends; the ones that allow us to try on every stitch of authenticity in our mental closet. They are the friends that help us discover who we really are when we strip away the masks. They cheer us on when our doubts get too big. They guard our secrets and talk sense when we need it. They listen, they share, they mourn and celebrate with us. They are the friends that live life up close with us and become our tribe.
They are the friends that fill our buckets and tonight, my bucket was filled with love and laughter.
