“Some people go to priests; others to poetry; I to my friends.” ~Virginia Woolf
English author Virginia Woolf often celebrated female friendship in her books and diaries. She knew how precious it is to have a friend or two who will listen to our fears, hopes, and dreams. That level of trust, she suggested, is built on shared history, common interests, and a deep commitment to supporting one another.
It’s true: If you’re feeling down and blue, a good talk with a trusted friend is the best antidote. I’m grateful for the friendships I lean on when the light goes out in my heart, or when I want to share a personal victory. Consider the friendships that enrich and support you now — and put them on your gratitude list this week. ~Cindy La Ferle
