February 4th is a day that forever changed my life on so many levels. One year ago today, we lost our beloved Jen B. It was a horrible day and one that I will never forget. I could walk around today and have my own pity party but that wouldn’t be respecting who Jen was. Today I want to honor her – the little things that she did to show her friends and family that she cared and that you mattered to her. The pictures she took, the notes she wrote, the gifts she shared and the memories she helped create. So I am going to put on my Jen B hat and embrace this day. I am going to celebrate all of my girlfriends and honor the best friend I could ever ask for. Today, the Smarty Team would like to invite you to join us in “Smarty Hug-Your-Girlfriends Day!”
I could not live without my girlfriends. I rely on them for everything. Whether it is a quick phone call on my way to carpool. Or the 6am workout which is the last thing on the planet I want to do. My supper club that I look so look forward to once a month. My school girlfriends who I lean on to help me guide my children through their new horizons. Or even a call to come to the hospital after my babies were born because my husband was sent home with a 104 fever. And last but certainly not least, my Smarty team who helped pick me up just when I thought my world was crumbling around me. Girlfriends get you through it all. The good and the bad. Women need each other and it truly is a beautiful thing.
So today we encourage you to give your girlfriends a hug, a phone call, an email or even better, take them to lunch or out for a glass of wine. Enjoy all of the wonderful women in your life and celebrate the time you have together. Don’t forget to email this post to all of your Smarty girlfriends!
