I don't know how many of you read and keep up with Kelle Hampton's blog Enjoying the Small Things on my blog list. If you don't, I must say you are missing out. I read a lot of blogs. Blogs about decorating, motherhood, and even about people's secrets. Kelle is a photographer which is evident from the blog. But, she is many, many other things as well. I don't know her, but she might be one of the most inspiring writers I have ever come across. I aspire to be that candid, brave, and open to all possibilities.
That being said, yesterday's post on her blog seriously made me cry. It wasn't the first time either (if you go to the site click "Start Here If You're New"). The title of the post she wrote yesterday was "The Net". I have always struggled with how to put into words the importance of friends. And not just any friends, but MY friends (which includes family too!). Maybe someday I can describe how I feel about them as adequately as Kelle does. At any rate, if you are one of my friends I want you to know that this post comes close to summing it up.
Everyone needs a net. Not just big groups of women, but everyone. If you don't have one let me know...you can join mine. They are the most brilliant, funny, compassionate people I know.
