Women Friends



By Pamela J. DeRoy 

There are few, if any, relationships that can top having wonderful women friends. They love you unequivocally, they provide a soft place to land, they take your side and they love being with you - and the wonderful thing is, that is how you feel about them too. They don’t criticize, they don’t cheat, they don’t feel superior to you, they praise you and, if there’s a crisis, they’re the first ones to be there for you. 

Women friends are more precious than any worldly riches. They walk in your shoes, they understand you and they love you anyway. I wouldn’t trade a single one of my friends for the handsomest, sexiest, most intelligent man around! Women friends have staying power - they don’t pout, they don’t boss you around. Women friends send you encouraging hand written notes or e-mail messages, they call to see how you’re doing and they’re enthusiastic about getting together with you. Long live women friends and friendships."

I'm Here

“I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it's true I'm here, and I'm just as strange as you.” - Frida Kahlo -
