Example brand tagline.

The best compliment my group of girlfriends ever received was someone saying we were like the girls in the movie Steel Magnolias. 

We can be completely different and yet so alike. We disagree but respect one another’s views. We can meet for a game of bridge and it reaches 11pm before the first round of cards are dealt. We generally only stop talking to take a breath!

I met this warm and gorgeous bunch of women more than 30 years ago. Some of us met at school, others through our local church. In the three decades since we’ve known each other we’ve seen the very best and the very worst of life. All of life’s ups and downs. The births and deaths of children, illness, marriage and divorce and the joy of becoming grandparents. Through all of this we’ve been by each other’s side. There were times I didn’t know how I would get through life’s struggles. Thank God I always had my friends there to give me strength and support. 

My friends are the most amazing bunch of women. They are kind, warm, generous and oh so funny! When we’re together the laughs barely stop! We can always find the funny side of any situation. 

The girls have taught me the value of patience, forgiveness and graciousness. They’ve shown me how special I am and that mistakes and misfortunes can always be overcome. The value of female friendship is priceless. I am so grateful to have this wonderful circle of friends in my life who accept and love me completely as I am. 

My Candid disc ‘Life is better with friends’ sums up exactly how much my gorgeous friends mean to me. My life and my world would not be the same without them!
