Go places with them; do things with them. They see the bad, ugly parts of us but through a sort of rosy filter that allows them to love us anyway, in spite of, or even because of our faults.
These are the women we slay dragons for and without hesitation. They know who they are in my life and they know that I appreciate them and love them with a deeper passion than can be described here. The friends, who are women, but are not girlfriends. One cannot survive on girlfriends alone; it would be too much. Girlfriends are intense. We laugh hard, we cry hard, living and dying with each other. Worthwhile, but exhausting.
Friends, on the other hand, are light, social, easy, comfortable. They come in all forms but are most usually built for one purpose for you: the shopper friend, the soccer mom friend, the business friend mentors included , the gossip friend who always has the latest, the old best friend from high school, the spiritual friend, the cook, the fr-enemy friend that you intend to keep a close eye on.

Many women were home raising their children and what resulted was a community of women who lived closely among one another—both geographically and with regard to their life experiences.

In my dreams I may visit a lush though over growing garden, deep in the crevices of May. The amber sun bores heartily on my back as I explore the garden.
