Ode to Gal Pals

No matter what season of life I've been in, God has been so faithful to provide solid girlfriends.

The kind of gals with whom you can say whatever off-the-wall thing is on your mind or blubber about your insecurities.


Girlfriends who teach you how to be a good friend and girlfriends who tell you when you should honestly walk away from that relationship.

Girlfriends who take time to be at your big moments and girlfriends who will go with you to egg that bad relationship guy's car.


Girlfriends who call out wonderful things in you and remind you of promises that you can stand on.

I think about the dear friends that were in my life for just a season and the ones who have walked with me through years and years.

Gal pals are worth investing in, worth making time for, worth being vulnerable. Thank you, God, for women who make us feel surrounded and rooted. Validated and understood. Less guilty about eating another Christmas white fudge oreo.

As I have watched you through the years, I have always been amazed how God has placed wonderful girls in your life. I have had periods in my life when that was not the case and can tell you -it is a blessing beyond measure! You are a good friend-so you have good friends.

You brought tears to my eyes with this post CC. You have spoken a great truth about friends, esp. gal pals. You know to have great friends, you must first be a great friend. You are one great friend and a wonderful gal yourself. Love you.
