I remember growing up I couldn't stand having friends that were girls.
Girls were awful friends, and so I surrounded myself with a group of awesome guys.
I never in my life thought I'd have women who I would enjoy being around.
During this time of singleness God has given me some really precious women.
I have to say, I would rather spend my evenings with them; talking, watching tv, drinking wine, and lounging in our pjs than out on a date.
I've noticed that as I've grown, the need for strong women in my life has also grown.
It is hard to go through life without someone you can count on and trust with all your pain and brokenness; especially if you are single.
I realize now how important my girl friends are, and how much I need them in my life.
There are things I can share with the ladies in my life openly without judgement that I couldn't ever share with someone who wasn't my husband.
When I was younger of course, that was never the case.
I'm amazed at how the relationships in my life have changed.
I went from being the girl with all guy friends, to a woman surrounded by sweet ladies that love and cherish me.
I have relationships that I hope will last a lifetime with some really special sisters.
I couldn't be more thankful for the support and love they give to me.
They've picked me up at my lowest and laughed with me through the best of times.
I'll never be able to thank them enough.
