My friend L recently got engaged. We have a girl's dinner once a month - there are 4 of us. I love girls dinner. What is funny is that all 4 of us were in the same sorority but we were not close when I was in college. I actually only knew their names. That changed over 2.5 years ago. We started our sushi dinner monthly outings and I have to say it helped me tremendously.
Last night L asked us all to be bridesmaids and I was so touched and thrilled.
It made me think of all of the other times I have been asked - A LOT OF TIMES- I lost count at having 7 bridesmaid dresses in my closet at one time. Yes - 7. Those have since been donated.
What I thought about was how lucky I am to have so many people who think of me so dear to them to want me to be part of their wedding party. It truly makes me feel so blessed to have such dear friends.
Some we are no longer as close and others - I am just as close if not closer. I also know that I will be a bridesmaid at least 2 more times.
Sometimes I think I take these amazing friendships for granted - especially when I think "i have no friends" because we all know that is not the case.
So- next October when L is saying her vows I will be up there with her, with all the girls, happy and in whatever dress she wants me to be in.
