Last week we talked about dealing with women who aren’t your close friends. It’s a totally different story when it’s your homegirls. There’s nothing wrong with recognizing that some people earn a spot in your inner circle. Jesus had an inner circle. Everyone should not be allowed the same access to your heart; the ones who earn those places deserve to get a good friend.
I am surrounded by talented, brilliant, caring women. And I call a handful of them close friends. Women I can share my heart with, women I trust with my story and my problems, women who love me and mine well. Some of them are walking similar paths; some are in other stages of life. I often walk away thinking that they are much better to me than I am to them and that I have so much to learn from them.
