As some of you may already know, I have vowed to "find" my friends this year. I'm not sure exactly what went wrong, but somehow over the past four months I have completely lost touch with nearly every friend.
My quest got an early start and is continuing on a decent pace, but all of this friend finding has me in a reflective mood.. These dear women that I am rediscovering are treasured gifts that I do not take for granted. You see, friendship has not always come easily for me. In fact, at times, it has been intensely painful.
In the next few blog posts I am going to take you through my evolution of friendship. Our starting place is ugly. So ugly that I hesitate to begin there. But I don't read books backwards. So we will start in the trenches and from there, we will only have one way to climb.
