I have several really great women friends. And, as women, we know that if we have a close female friend, they are a true friend – someone who is tried and true. We need that support; we need that love; we need that friendship. I have a friend in London that I correspond with. We talk back and forth, spending our time telling of our woes, our happiness, our goals and pursuits, our children and husbands.
My London friend is a little older than me and our cultures are very different, our skin color is different, but a lot of our issues are the same: we are both artists, though she paints and I sing, we both have hot flashes, we both have kids, we are both facing wrinkles in the mirror, we both have lower back problems, neither of us are rich —- and on and on. It’s a little funny, but it’s great at the same time.
She’s my “hot chocolate sister.” When I see that I’ve got an email from her, I really want to get a cup of hot chocolate and sit back and take my time to read what she’s got to say. Her correspondence is engaging and I hope that my responses are equally so.
So, ladies, I hope that you’ve got a lot of “hot chocolate” friends and sisters out there who embrace you from close and afar. It’s a women’s world and we’re all in this thing together.
