A visit with a good friend!

I had just ran 2 miles and was one hot mess when I heard someone on my front porch, I thought great I am sweaty and smelly who can that be?
When I look out the window and it was my dear friend Lila.
So I decided not to hide and pretend I wasn't home.
You know she has to be a good friend if I was willing to let her see me in this state.
She was bringing back all the clothes she had borrowed for her Cruise last week.
She came in and we chatted for a few hours.
I committed to her that it had been ages since we did this.
I then had a moment and realized this is what I have been missing.
I have been missing true friendship.
Yes I have lots of really great friends but I have not been a good friend.
I from time to time have lunch or girl night but I haven't nurtured my friendship with my Alaska girls.
Maybe that why I have felt lonely here.
It was funny because she agreed that she was doing the same thing, I felt a little better.
So I guess the only thing I can do now is improved and be a better friend.

Don't you just love self awareness moments and aren't you glad I shared mine with all of you?
I hope everyone is having a great day today!

I'm totally impressed that you ran 2 miles.
Talking with girlfriends is good for the soul!

I am still sore from my 2 miles today and I didnt run all of it.

:) I had one of those aha moments wehn I moved here and it has made a world of difference. I have the group of girls here that I love dearly. I consider them all my besties.

I miss our long chats in the car or on the phone. :) I agree, that is one of the reasons I am having a hard time here, but I am trying to remedy that. :) Love ya!!!!!!! Way to go for running 2 miles!
