This year seventeen women shared a meal; one joined via Skype and another was there in spirit, so a total of nineteen women brought together by various circumstances; remaining together because of friendship.
Drinks, food, laughter and a few tears were shared.
Triumphs and joys were mingled (along with several bottles of champagne, wine and rum).
Laughter and love was multiplied.
And make-up applied! (Makeovers are a new tradition but one that I vote stays.)
To my GNO girls:
I thank God daily, for each of you.
You make my life better and you make me a better person just knowing you. Each of us mirrors the best parts of each other. I love you for that.
I thank you for the laughter, the strength and the support. Friendships like these are only supposed to come around once and to have nineteen separate friends like you makes me rich indeed.
(Although I am a little pissed that NO ONE noticed my new glasses. WTH ladies?)
