I have been blessed to have had so many amazing women come through my life. Some friendships have lasted through the years, while some were with me for only a short time. I look forward to nurturing these relationships, both old and new.
Female friendships and their importance are explored in The HerStories Project: Women Explore the Joy, Pain, and Power of Female Friendship. I am very proud to announce that I am one of 50 contributors to this new anthology, including a foreword from Jill Smokler of Scary Mommy.
My contribution “High School Friendships” came about as I reflected on the relationships my girls are forming throughout their school years. I often wonder if any of the girls who walk through my front door, stay until all hours of the night, and share meals with us will be the girlfriends that last through my daughters' lifetimes.
When I think back to the four years I spent at an all-girls high school, all I can remember is laughter and joy. All of those amazing girls, and the lessons they taught me, shaped my future friendships with other women. If I changed anything about these relationships, I wouldn't be who I am today.
Each friendship tells a story and helps define the woman that we are constantly evolving into.
In this book, each of the 50 contributors share all the details of the beauty as well as stories of destruction in their relationships. Readers will be able to find their stories through the words of others. Hopefully, this book will cause deep reflection on past relationships and be the starting point in rekindling an old friendship.
