Making time in my schedule to have coffee with a girlfriend = priceless time spent. I just love when you can sit down with a friend, truly be yourself and pick up like you haven’t skipped a beat. In those moments, it seems like you could sit for hours talking about anything and everything – but life and schedules do not allow it. Sometimes it is a bummer to be an adult w responsibilities. But while you are there, you feel your soul being refilled and your spirits lifting. Then I wonder, why don’t I do this more often??? Why don’t I make this more of a priority???
Life is so much better when you surround yourself with a tribe of solid women.
Women who you can take your “mask” off with and be 100% authentic. And they still love you, with all your faults, bumps and imperfections. And more importantly, they cheer you on. They cheer you on, no matter what is going in their life. They pray for you when you need it and sometimes when you do not even realize you need that prayer. As Sarah Bessey states, “the best friends are those that are hair petting and ass-kicking.” (BTW – if you haven’t read Sarah Bessey’s latest book. READ IT IMMEDIATELY. Ahhhhhmazing)
So when the time comes to drink the last drop of my coffee, pay the tab and give a hug goodbye to my sweet friend – I always like to say “till next time” instead of goodbye. Because I know how important the “next time” is for our souls & friendship.
When is the next time you are filling your cup up with a sweet friend?
You won’t regret that time spent. I promise you.
