"One is not born a woman,
one becomes one."
-Simone de Beauvoir
Yesterday, I received an email response from my long-time friend Jan. For many years - far beyond a ten-finger count - we have made time to commemorate each other's birthdays. The celebrations have taken on a precious jewel-like quality glimmering across time - we have met both in joy and sorrow. Life has naturally defined us; but, together as friends, we have created a delightful, sweet harmony of kind consideration. We owe our friendship a debt of gratitude... within it's composition we have found added grace to become better women...
Who are the friends who have blessed you with finer definition and gifted you with a grateful heart?
