I have always been a girls girl.
When I was a child, my first best friend was a girl. As I have gotten older, my best friends have always been girls.
Maybe it was the fact that I was raised in a house full of women (while the men did what they did) and only had two other girl cousins until I was 7.
Most likely it’s because I’m a girl and I can always relate to other girls better than the opposite sex.
All through my life I have been very blessed to have had the best of girl friends not just in my personal but also in my work life.
Some I have parted with through the years, some I have re-connected with once again but, for the most part, I have had the same girlfriends for many years now.
There is just something about girl power!
