Lunch Ladies

21 Apr

I have a friend who started out just being another woman who happened to work in the same building as me. We’d stop by one another’s offices and share a few laughs and chat for a bit. There is 20 years difference between the two of us, but you’d never know it because we both love to travel, we love to laugh and we love to enjoy life.

A few years ago, she quit her job and decided to retire. Since we don’t get to see each other on a daily basis, we email often , talk on the phone and try to get together at least once a month to have lunch.

We go to the same restaurant. We order the same dishes. But the conversation is always different and it’s such a great bonding time. Whether we are talking about the fabulous new shoes we got on sale or the extra time we’ll have to put in at the gym since we got dessert, there is just something so unbelievably phenomenal about girlfriends.

They encourage us to go after our dreams. They share our excitement when we’ve dropped a couple of pounds. They know when we just need a hug.

So if you haven’t connected with a friend in a while. Give her a call or send her a text and tell her you want the two of you to be Ladies Who Lunch.
