I have found this to be true:

Ladies in My Circle Pass this on, to your Ladies circle.

When I was little, I used to believe in
the concept of one best friend,
And then I started to become a

And then I found out that if you
allow your heart to open up,
God would show you
the best in many friends.

One friend is needed when you're going
through things with your man.
Another friend is needed when you're going
through things with your mom.

Another will sit beside you in the bleachers as you
delight in your children and their activities.
Another when you want to shop, share, heal, hurt,
joke, or just be.

One friend will say, 'Let's cry together,'
Another , 'Let's fight together,'
Another , 'Let's walk away together.'

One friend will meet your spiritual need,
Another your shoe fetish,
Another your love for movies,

Another will be with you in your season of confusion,
Another will be your clarifier,
Another the wind beneath your wings.

But whatever their assignment in your life,
On whatever the occasion,
On whatever the day,
Or wherever you need them to
meet you with their gym shoes on and hair pulled back,

Or to hold you back from making a complete fool
of yourself .
Those are your best friends.

It may all be wrapped up in one woman,
But for many, it's wrapped up in several..

One from 7th grade,
One from high school,
Several from the college years,

a couple from old jobs,
On some days your mother,
On some days your neighbor,

On others, your sisters,
And on some days, your daughters.

So whether they've been your friend
for 20 minutes or 20 years,


Pass this on to the women that God has
placed in your life
To make a difference.

"If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer."
- Matthew 21:22

Sherry this is sooo true. I have three best friends and they are all there for me for different things. They have totally different backgrounds and temperaments but they are all there for me when I need them. I pray that you will be blessed with such good friends. You sound so very lonely sometimes.
