i realized something this evening as nighttime came and passed- i realized that relationships are constantly in flux and it is our duty to touch base with those we love and inquire about balance every now and then. women's friendships turn round on the same principal as a marriage- they need tending and attention. i am so lucky to have the friends i have.  i don't always get to see everyone but most often i am thinking
of them and hoping all is well in their corner of the world.

i spent the evening talking with a friend. our talks were focused on our friendship, one that has spanned many years. we talked about our families and our jobs and our issues- the very real ones that we do have. the ones we may want to ignore because sometimes the history you have with a person can try and be sneaky and trump or hide anything that is wrong.

friendships as we become older though need to be able to be given the opportunity to change and shift without failing too. they are not level playing fields anymore between me and the handful of women i love like mad. everyone is so different and in such different places, but the middle is the matter. the crux of it is what first brought me to love them.  these perfectly lovely girls who i have shared so much with. when the world was so easy.  the crux of it is gooey and full of adoration and bliss and i am thankful it is always going to be there even when garden nights are full of tears and beers wine.

so tell your friends you love them today.
ask them if things are ok.
find out if you are in balance.
be more aware and you will feel
that the space around your heart will stretch.

love sent,
