Not only am I a wife, mother, and business woman...but I am also a friend. Over the years, I've learned that the word "friend" is not to be taken lightly-or used loosely. A true friend will put others before themselves, will be there through the good times and the bad times, and will respect you for who you are rather than what you do. They will understand that you are, in fact, human like that and will make dumb decisions. A friend will relate to you, or at least make the attempt. I could go on forever, but I won't. I've learned so much about what friendship is and is not in the last few years.
My best friend in the whole entire world is my husband; but as a woman, I sometimes feel I need that other category of comradery. Men can only relate so much to women, and sometimes I know my husband does not understand me. Not because he doesn't want to, because believe me, he goes out of his way to try. But because sometimes only a woman knows how another woman feels. I'd love to meet other mothers that can relate.
