“It’s not that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but it’s your best friends who are your diamonds.” – Gina Barreca

Today, I am thinking of my friendships, particularly those closest to my heart, – my diamond friends.

I am lucky. I have a handful of friends who are beautiful, strong and valuable – just like diamonds. They are each fun to be with. I can be my true self with them, and they with me. We can be silly together, or serious. 

I miss each of them if I have been unable to see them for a while, but I know we can start right where we left off, when we do catch up. 

They have each suffered hardships, and come through with enough strength to smile again; and to help and support me when I needed a shoulder to lean on. 

Many of my best memories contain at least one of these lovely people. 

My life shines most brightly because of these diamond friends.
