So many. My high school years – Elena and Nancy and Judy and Renee. My 20s, Maryann and Judy and Betty and Laura. My 30s – Linda and Vera and Marisa and Terry and Shelly. My 40s – Terry and Amber and Sonnie and Pam. My 50s – Suzanne and Judy and Kaye and Melissa and and and and …. and now, turning 60 – my daughter/friends are so important.
And my sister – through all the decades. The lifetime friend.
I’m not usually thankful for challenges. Wait – I’m never thankful for challenges.
Maybe the most challenging thing I’ve experienced was becoming a nurse and that first year. So I am thankful I made that journey, because it brought me to doing what I do now. A job, vocation, hobby, most rewarding daily activity of supporting moms becoming moms.
