Dear Ones

Tonight three of my most precious friends came over to have some girly time. We have known each other for so long and it was great to have a few cocktails and chat. Even though Megan and Lana both live here, we still seem to lose touch. Megan H is our NYC buddy who is in town so graciously taking care of her mother after she just had foot surgery. We all love each other so much and it was good to be together again, if only for a short while.

Transition is taking hold as we all move on through our lives. We are getting older, we are having children, but some of our friends are not yet married. Two of them were over last night and the other one just got engaged. As a married woman now for 3 years, it is hard for me to understand the feelings of those that aren't at this point. It came up more than once and it continues to do so with my college friends, my internet friends too. If I slip on their shoes, I see the difficulty there is in seeing all these wonderful things happening around you, you are happy for your friends, but that is still missing in your life. I realize the role that society plays in all of this and it makes me sad and a bit angry. The thing that these friends of mine don't understand is that there is time. We are young. Why do we feel as if we are so old?? We will be having children for a long time, our group of friends. I want to shake them and tell them that there is a man out there for them. We don't choose love, love chooses us. That this journey has no timetable. None of us know what life will bring. For now we just need to keep on loving each other, and supporting one another, and empathizing with each other. I love my friends. They are gifts from God and after a rough week, I feel so refreshed tonight. Thanks girls.
