I am blessed to have a loving family and great friends. I am grateful everyday to have these people in my life. I have had these 3 friends for abut 35 years or so. I have other friends of course. But these three have been there for each other and me, we have gone through many of life's trials and survived them together. I think every woman needs a woman or women in there life for emotional support, fun and laughter. They cant replace your family, but you need them in a different way.
