12 Friends

July 15, 2011

Today, I was rummaging through magazine clippings to send out with my snail mail and I came across this article from the February 2006  issue of Glamour magazine.  The article was written by Eliza Marston and is called, “12 friends every woman deserves.”  

 

I love the different friends it suggests we should all have.  It made me feel very blessed because I have the most amazing friends.  I’m so lucky to have these great people in my life.

*Special Note: This picture can’t possibly show all of the great friends I have in my life, but I thought this was a great representation for this blog post.  

 

12 Friends Every Woman Deserves

  1. The friend who won’t let you be less than your best, even if you sometimes want to kick her.

  2. The friend who’s spent the holidays with your parents, gotten drunk with your brother, and lived through the dog-spaying incident of ’92.  She’s family.

  3. The personal comedian, so hilarious that you dare not call her while driving.

  4. The friend who’s a little bit evil – so entertaining!

  5. A rich friend who will always buy you dinner.

  6. A poor friend who’ll let you buy hers.

  7. The work friend: listener, knower of backstory, savor of sanity.

  8. The friend you can’t wait to be Golden Girls with.

  9. The neighbor who’ll lend her drill – or a pair of red stilettos.

  10. The friend who drags out of you all the sexual details you’re secretly dying to share.

  11. The friend who rafts the Amazon, gets a pet snake and does speed dating – so you don’t have to.

  12. The friend who, instead of asking how she can help, just shows up and does.

How about you? Who are your friends on this list?  Make sure that you thank your lucky stars tonight before you go to bed for all the special people in your life.
