I have a group of friends that I get to hang out with once in a while that I refer to as my Golden Girls. I became acquainted with these ladies at church and they really are a joy to be around. I don't get to see them as often as I would like, but when we do get together we always enjoy each others company. They are all a bit older than me (they're all old enough to be my mother) but for some reason, they've welcomed me into their world and I'm honored to a part of it. Today, I hosted a brunch (something that we started last year and will continue annually) and all of them were here. It was terrific. When I woke up and saw how terrible the weather was, I truly expected a phone call or two canceling, but they all braved the elements and came. We had a great time, sharing stories and just being together. They truly are a blessing to me. Even though I don't see them as much as I'd like, I know that I'm in their prayers and that is a great comfort.
