i get by with a little help from my friends

if you want a clue into the friendships of women, check out sex and the city. i really love this show. i totally don’t relate to all the casual sex and picking up men (i’m just way too shy to pick up guys and too old fashioned for casual sex), but i do relate to the single angst, relationship woes and friendships. tonite’s episode was about carrie’s 35th birthday, about feeling alone and growing old. and it was her girlfriends who came along, who celebrated her, who reminded her she really wasn’t alone. i get that. those kinds of girlfriends are the ones who make life a little easier and a lot more fun. i’m so grateful to have a few of those kinds of girlfriends in my life.

lately i’ve been processing the whole growing old alone thing on a really deeply personal level. and in the midst i have a few friends who are sticking by me, reminding me i’m not alone. i’m so grateful for these friends. i couldn’t get by without them.

    That is awsome, Mindi. I wish I had women in my life like that. All my female friends here are married and come to think of it…they are in So Cal as well…except for one, but she’s still in her 20s!

    actually, in my case, my friends are married. i have a few single friends, but my closest friends are married.

    Ditto and they are all a lot older than me…but one! She is a year younger and has a kid who is a senior in high school and a daughter in my ministry!

    I’d be interested in hearing if you’ve come up with any answers to the growing old alone thing…
