They are important.

Husbands and boyfriends and children and family and parents, they are important too.

But girlfriends?  They're the ones that keep you sane.  Those people up there?  They're usually the source of the crazy.  Girlfriends are the solution.

They lift you during the rough days.

They tell you that you're too good for him and they mean it. Because you are.

They laugh their asses off when you send hilariously inappropriate texts to your sister who is away at college about her hottie boyfriend friend who is at the bar with you.  Cheers Mrs Robinson.

They hold your hand and tell you life sometimes sucks, but I am here.  Right here.  Anytime you need me.

They oooh and ahhh and gush about your cute new apartment.  They mean every single word when they say, they are endlessly proud of how much you have picked yourself up and done what is good for you.  Because you deserve happiness.

They love your bangs.

They watch your dad's band and cheer him on like he's a rockstar.  Because he's your daddy.

They love that your husband watches your munchkin and sends you out to the bar to have some fun.

They laugh with you.  They cry with you.  They pretend they don't know you when you decide to go postal, but they're secretly cheering you on.

My girlfriends?  They're amazing and gorgeous and funny and talented.  I'll bet yours are too. 

Take just a minute today to tell them.

I'm going to count myself as one of your girlfriends simply because I can't imagine not being one. You have good friends, because you define good friend. Have a great day!

Thanks for the crossout because you know I would've hasseled you. And to your friends, please do not encourage Michelle's crazy cougarish behavior from now on, but thanks for being there for her when I can't be. LOVE YOU ALL!
