Today by a random turn of events I was able to spend quality time with a very good friend of mine. At first I panicked because my house wasn’t nearly as clean as I was hoping, but like a good friend does, she didn’t mind.
We talked. We laughed….. and laughed….. and laughed….. and laughed some more.
She didn’t care about my dirty floors, my messy table or that there were dirty dishes that needed to be done.
All she and I cared about was catching up.
This was such a huge lift in my spirits. I could finally relax.
If you have been reading recently (and really who has?), then you might get the sense that I’m having a difficult time right now. I’m really not, its just that I’m missing my friends who simply “get me”. I’m missing the joy that comes with friends who understand you better than you do in a way that’s different than your husband.
When you get married, things change. That’s a fact. It’s neither good nor bad, its just different, and that’s ok. Your single friends don’t quite get it, and your married friends are too busy hanging with their hubby and children. But sometimes you need to get with a girlfriend and let it all hang out.
Those are the times I miss the most.
And today I got a glimmer into the “old me” and I remembered that I really like her.
