For the last 20 years, my social life was shaped by my role as a mother. Oh! It was a wonderful time of my life. Delightful excursions with friends, with all our children. Picnics, parades, parks - you name it, we enjoyed it. However friendships independent of my family were not cultivated.
Naturally, as the kids grew older the paradigm of my social life shifted. In this new phase of my life, I am enjoying friends of my very own!
Today I celebrate my friendship with Jaye. Love that we enjoy similar interests. Our conversations can be poignant AND super silly within a breath of each other. I am very grateful to have a friend available for quick walks in the neighbourhood and evening paddles around our local lake.
