Ladies, Do You Have a Good Girlfriend: PART 2

This won’t be long, but I just had to share. I have a girlfriend who is currently walking through treatment for breast cancer. I try to stay current on her treatment dates and times, and yesterday was her 3rd. She’s always on my heart so much on those days. I just pray the Lord’s blessings upon her as she endures this journey with so much class and grace.

So yesterday’s post was about girlfriends, right? Yesterday, I was a ranting advocate for every woman finding a way to have meaningful friendships with other women. Now who knew that when I published the post on yesterday my sweet girlfriend would be reading the post while receiving her chemotherapy treatment? And get this. One of HER girlfriends was there reading the post along with her. Below is a quote from the text message she sent me. I started to post a screenshot of the actual text, but she’d probably get me for putting her predictive text bloopers on display to the general public. 🙂

“….my other sister friend and I read your blog during my treatment! How ironic is that? You write so beautifully and today’s message was right on target! I’m so glad to say I have those kinds of friendships! I can’t imagine life without them!”

All I could say was WOW and that’s still all I can say! I feel like in a small way I was there with her yesterday as she received her treatment. This blessed me so much I just had to share it. See y’all. GIRLFRIENDS! I’m telling you, they’re a blessing.

Until next time, my dear girlfriends…

P.S. Notice the pink font in honor of my friend. 🙂
