“Make new friends but keep the old. One is silver but the other is gold.”
Do you remember this little song from the Brownie’s? If you are very lucky you learned from an early age the value of girlfriends. I have been fortunate my entire life to be blest with the most wonderful women friends.
Last week a group of six of us ran away from our responsibilities for a few days and spent some time laughing and relaxing and just being friends.
My dear friend, Fran, dubbed us the Golden Girls on Spring Break but I think we were truly golden – gold in the fact that we were women who have been friends for decades. We have helped each other in sickness and in grief and we still laugh hysterically at how silly we can be (like when we checked into the wrong hotel the first night) and how much joy there is in this world to celebrate.
From the left we are: Jane, Mag, Barb, Fran, Michele and Bernadette, aka The Golden Girls
Wishing you the gold and silver of friendship,
