When the older group of girls arrived, then later joined by a couple more, I watched as they sat in the pool quietly chatting about college registration, getting ready to move out on their own, and other topics. Again, this took me to those days when I said goodbye to my own sisters in friendship, and only later did I come to understand that parting does not mean leaving.
My friends & I are now women in our upper 40's & older, & we now know that we are never too far away to recharge the batteries for each other. Meeting for drinks is just an excuse to do this.
It might be a phone call, a Facebook post, or a dinner date, but we sit, chat, laugh, comfort, and support each other. Until we are ready to get back to our daily lives and face the challenges that come with being a woman.
Then we part, this time knowing that we are not leaving.
