Thanks For Being On My Team

Monday, February 4, 2013

Last week I had three separate experiences from three amazing women in my life. Each one has crossed my path at various points throughout my little sojourn. We've shared stories, taken road trips, eaten mini-pies together, and exposed the rough raw places of the heart. These gals are real. They make my life joyous and make every day better for the people around them.

To be reminded of their strength buoyed me. Their willingness to reach out to me, even when all of them, all three of these brilliantly bright, talented, and warm women are experiencing private battles of their own, made my heart swell and my eyes overflow. One dear friend I had not talked to in over a year and a half called me as I was in the middle of making dinner. Seeing her name on my phone made me stop. Sit down. And take note of what she had to tell me. Another friend sent text after text message, reassuring me that my current hardship would be worth the struggle. Finally, I received tender and kind words on beautiful handmade paper that had a real stamp and everything. These women encouraged me to my core. Of course there are others. Some have stayed in my life and others are sweet faded memories. But wherever I go, no matter the distance that separates us, I am reminded that my life is enriched by my association with remarkable women. Women I can't do without. Friends that offer me support in the very moments when I need it most. To them I say thank you. Thank you.

And for those of you that need a little pep talk of your own this Monday afternoon I think this video (which you may have already seen) is a reminder that we have work to do. Awesome and brave work, supporting those we hold dear. 

And if life is a game, aren't we all on the same team?


  1. I'm so sorry that you're going through something. You are strong and will make it through. It is so true that having good people in our life makes the worst of times bearable. *hugs*
