Great Girlfriends

This is bound to be a bit of a sappy post...just be forewarned.

I have the best girlfriends. And what is truly shocking is that some of these women I have only known them for a few months. Yet it feels like I have known them for years...some even feel like sisters. This is partly because of the military. You are forced to put yourself out there and get to know people quickly because they could be moved away in a short time.

So back to these amazing women in my life. When I opened up about our struggles...I am an open-book of course...they offered a hug. Nothing more, nothing less. This was exactly what I needed. They didn't tell me to relax...they didn't tell me to just go adopt. And when 15 people in one week announce they are pregnant...they listen to me through the tears. All because they want to be there for me and support me. While I know they would do anything possible to give me my most wanted gift....they don't make promises that can't be kept. They will be there when my husband cannot be. To hold me hand and dry my tears.

And while they do these all these amazing things, I feel like I offer nothing but tears and bitching. But they are still there. I love them. And you all know who you are. You are the honorary aunties....because of your positive thoughts I know that I am going to get the fantastic gift some day. I know that I will be a mom and you all will be aunties!

Thank you for your amazing friendship!

I wish I could make friends as easily as you! Last night I was begging Brandon to introduce me to his friend's wives. Of course, he hasn't made too many friends here yet so that sucks for me. I also asked him to introduce me to my ombudsman for his new command and he said because we're on shore duty that I don't get one! I'm having the hardest time trying to make new friends out here. I can't wait till our IVF so I can hang out with you! And maybe we'll both make some new cycle buddies too.

I also want to thank my daughter's amazing girlfriends she's made since she's been in J'ville. It is so comforting to me that I know you're there with support when I cannot be. And Christa, I'm including you too. I've followed your blog for awhile and wish I could have met you while you were still in WA. Hugs to ALL of you for being there for myn girl!
