We all need a bestie, don’t we? Someone who has our back, who pats our back and who will be our backup whenever necessary. While V-Day is usually celebrated as a romantic holiday, I thought this year I’d focus on the love between friends. It’s Grace & Frankie‘s Besties Valentine’s Day! I wrote about my take on the costumes and sets of the show a couple of weeks ago.
The absolute best part about this series is it’s focus on the importance of female friendship – regardless of how it comes about.
Your friend is your needs answered.
She is your field which you sow with love and reap with thanksgiving.
And she is your board and your fireside.
For you come to her with your hunger, and you seek her for peace.
When your friend speaks his mind you fear not the “nay” in your own mind, nor do you withhold the “ay.”
And when he is silent your heart ceases not to listen to his heart;
For without words, in friendship, all thoughts, all desires, all expectations are born and shared, with joy that is unacclaimed.
When you part from your friend, you grieve not;
For that which you love most in him may be clearer in his absence, as the mountain to the climber is clearer from the plain.
And let there be no purpose in friendship save the deepening of the spirit.
For love that seeks aught but the disclosure of its own mystery is not love but a net cast forth: and only the unprofitable is caught.
And let your best be for your friend.
If she must know the ebb of your tide, let him know its flood also.
For what is your friend that you should seek her with hours to kill?
Seek him always with hours to live.
For it is hers to fill your need, but not your emptiness.
And in the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures.
For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.
