Nothing like it

The other night I went out with two of my dear friends for a girls only night which is my best form of therapy.  :)  Oh what a time.  Sharing our hearts, even some tears, and a whole lot more chuckles. We closed down the restaurant (it's becoming a habit ) and the staff even commented, "we've really enjoyed listening to you ladies laugh tonight..."  We did savor these insanely good ice cream desserts pictured above, but more than that we enjoyed the company of one another.  

There is nothing like the sweet fellowship of like minded, loyal friends.  It's more comforting than ice cream.

"Oh the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all out, just as they are, chaff and grain together, certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away."  ~George Eliot

Did you know that George Eliot was actually a woman? She wrote under a man's name because women didn't get published in her day. No wonder her words speak so perfectly to the power of women's friendships.
