I remember how my Grandma Cora and her friend, Aunt Sadie, would sit in their kitchens and talk and talk about themselves and their families.
There are people who say that women can’t be friends, that women are competitors who get “catty” with one another. Google the topic, and you’ll see why conversations filled with love, laughter and tears can’t exist between women. Well, no one told Grandma Cora and Aunt Sadie, or even Susie, my BFF during our teenage years.
Joan Chittister writes in The Friendship of Women, “A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words.” Michelle, Susie, Mary, Donna, Lydia and Mary Ellen have sung this heart-song to me when my own heart couldn’t remember it.
This message is excerpted from “You’ve got a friend” by Susie Gamelin in the March 2019 issue of Gather magazine. Today we observe the visit of Mary to Elizabeth.
