Monday August 1st is National Girlfriends Day. Really everyday should be a celebration of great friendships.
I am so blessed to have such an amazing group of women in my girlfriend circle. Some have been friends since 6th grade and others at different points in my life. No matter when these women came into my life they ALL have a special place in my heart.
So when Monday comes reach out to your girls and let them know how grateful you are to have them in your corner.
Unfortunately I don’t have pictures of me & all of my girlfriends but here are some of the women that I call FRIEND.
This crew met in 1985 at the University of Tennessee at Martin. We were given the name “Wolfpack” because we hung tight….then and now. Pictured from top to bottom. Velma, Adrienne, Cheryl, Me, Audrey
Adrienne & I met in 9th grade homeroom at Immaculate Conception High School of Girls. To say this that this is my “ride or die” is an understatement. We have been through it all TOGETHER!!!
More IC family, I met Carol in the 9th grade & Rikki in the 6th grade at St. Joseph. The ups & downs of life can’t keep us apart.
My crafty girlfriend and fellow cancer, Michelle. We met in the 6th grade and lived in the same neighborhood.
My little sister Stephanie. Although she is Michelle’s biological sister I claim her as mine.
UT Martin was good to me. Ponsella & I met at UTM. Although separated by a lot of miles we find a way to stay connected.
New Memphis Institute brought Miska & I together (S09) and the support and encouragement never stops.
Andrea & I met at Memphis State University, since then we graduated together, worked together, pledged together and serve the community together.
Jackie and I met through a mutual friend and our friendship has continued to grow. She is also my favorite Yogi…..Namaste
Last but certainly not least….Summer. Believe it or not Facebook brought us together. That’s a blog post all by itself. This lady keeps me inspired and believing for a better life.
HAPPY GIRLFRIENDS DAY!!!!!
