Other than the most obvious definition for the word girlfriend the dictionary describes it as a "woman's woman friend"...something I think sounds all together bland and boring...and deadly dull sounding...the definition not the actual friend...although I guess some out there must be deadly dull and boring because we all know people who are deadly dull...but certainly not our girlfriends.
Anyway I had the opportunity to spend the day with three of my most favorite girlfriends...Susan, Becky and our long distance (all the way from Spain!) friend Jennifer who is in town for the week. And this is why I can say that the dictionary doesn't do the word justice...you laugh with a girlfriend...you cry...you vent...you unload...you encourage...you strengthen...you keep each other on the narrow way...you point each to Christ...and sometimes you get to do it over a yummy lunch and a pedicure. "A woman's woman friend..." hrumph...(that by the way is how you spell the sound that a snort makes...uhmm...is...the sound that a snort is.)
I loved spending the day with you all...what a triple blessing God has given me.
