My mother-in-law Sheri has a large tight knit group of friends that have been together through the thick and thin of each other’s lives. They remind me of the Desperate Housewives without the desperate part. Okay so the only resemblance to the Desperate Housewives is probably the fact that they all live by each other and know everything about each other. The women from Steel Magnolias would be a better fitting description.
These women have such a history together and know the in and outs of each other’s family, kids, hobbies, work, fears, and loves. They’ve been together through babies, marriages, deaths, and even cancer. These women have been through it ALL and have been there to support each other along the way. They are all incredibly STRONG women with strong values and opinions. After marrying my husband they’ve now invested in me, my life, and my kids. They’ve taught me what it takes to be a good friend and I appreciate that.
There’s something special bond between the women over there in Thornton that can’t be fabricated. Whether it’s camping out together for the Nordstrom opening or taking lunch to a friend that’s having a bad day…they do it together.
