Ok, so I don’t exactly have a comedy career. Yet. Maybe a little bit…
You know when you have friends who you can freely voice extreme amounts of madness with, and they chuckle hysterically at your crazy talk because they get it, and they get you; and they respond in kind, and either match your response, or raise the stakes with their own wild replies? Those are the kinda girlfriends I like to roll with. Those are the ones I seek out and commune with. Because really. What is life if you can’t cackle with your friends to take the edge off? When your stand up comedy routine is safe in front of your friends, (who probably tell you how foolish you are while they chortle), you’re high on the “true” friend barometer. THEN you know you’ve really got something special going!

(These photos are in the middle of Kenya this summer. We stopped for the bus driver to repair one of the most rickety buses on the roads of the Kenya. At this point we needed to pee, and we were working out our pee location plan)

I feel inclined to write about this because we’re all going through stuff, and having friends to laugh, vent, and eat cake with (perhaps all at once), is precious. To my girlfriends reading this, THANK YOU. I appreciate you. I heart you. I’m so grateful for you, and to you.
We need to take each other out for cake, or lunch, or any meal you can schedule. With all the overwhelm, it really helps. If you can’t eat or drink together, call and talk. You know how we love/always need, a good talk.

One of the biggest conversations I have with my friends about friendship, is how hard it is to make new friends; especially when you’re a mom, and especially when you move to a new city or country. It takes time. It can be brutal. It’s hard to tell who will truly appreciate your stand up comedy routine. I always tell my friends to stay open, and give people a chance. They always tell me it’s still hard. I bring this up because a random “heeeyy”, or “love your shoes today”, can only ever do good things for a fellow lady’s spirit. And you never know where that may lead; and if it doesn’t lead anywhere, you still did your part to do a mini spirit lift that day. So stay open!

These photos represent the chortling good time I think friendship is about. Some key comedians are missing (because they couldn’t all make it to Kenya this time), but this is essentially what our time together looks like.
