Truly Precious Moments

When I was younger, I collected a few Precious Moments figurines of those magical moments in life – engagement, wedding, pregnancy, first child, first Christmas. Today I realized that they are all of smiley moments. But some of the most precious moments in my life have been when I was crying my eyes out and a good friend cared enough to cry with me. If I could find a figurine of two women just bawling their eyes out (preferably with tears, mascara and snot intermingling as they run down the faces), I swear I would buy it and display it prominently in my home. Here’s to real friendships and how much beauty they add to this sometimes very painful life. #thankGodforgirlfriends
