What spoke volumes to me was that my friend was not afraid. Her courage while waiting to have surgery, meaning the weeks before, was inspiring. Her ability to enjoy her life continued in spite of not knowing all that was ahead reflected a bright light of bravery to me. My friend was and is one brave cowgirl!
Another close friend was on a road trip with her daughter. She shared that her daughter wanted the two to split up, have time apart. I love my friend's take. "I went off and spent time with my three best friends, Me, Myself, and I." Now we all have those best friends if we allow ourselves to have them.
Friendship is a part of this blog. It is invaluable to me. There have been numerous times when the support of friends got me through some difficult circumstances. Friends have been my support in times when my courage felt weak as well as in times of much happiness. Friends have helped me to be brave!
Cowgirls, go out and spend time with, and get to know that "best friend" that you have inside. You have a tremendous resource just waiting to be called upon. Would you consider me a friend, too, that wants to share your journey? Will you share mine? Together, we can be stronger!
