The judgiest judges went crazy. The way I was bashed, one would have thought I had written an article about beating my children. I was called a horrible mother and told that I was ruining my children’s lives.
My girlfriends of about 40 years were gathered in a small circle, chatting and giggling, while looking over small phone screens at pictures of each other’s children. The scene felt somewhat familiar…
When I met them, I had no idea how much I would need them. I am so grateful for these women and their families. Sometimes, I don’t believe that my daughters and I would have survived the hardest moments without them.
It doesn’t matter how many friends you have in your army, as long as they know how to love you in bad times as well as good ones.
I am not exempt and neither are you. Man, woman, boobs and balls. Get yourself checked.
I would like to believe, but I have never been sure if “signs” from loved ones who have passed away are really possible. I sometimes think that maybe we just search for them to make ourselves feel better.

‘Adulting’ is a term that I take issue with because apparently, being an adult truly sucks. Nothing about ‘adulting’ is aligned with fun and frivolity.
Even though I struck a cord, it would take me the next decade, and a few more friendships lost, to understand that it’s really OK when someone you invest in decides to walk away.
There are several ways to be a “good friend” and a crap load of ways to be a “bad” one. I know you can all relate! I have seen friendships end over stupid arguments, miscommunication and Facebook.
