Women I Want to Grow Old With

Women I Want to Grow Old With will encourage you to be intentional about making and keeping female friends. Friends fill unspeakable voids, provide certainty in uncertain times, offer a safeguard of love, and are as important to our well-being as our health and finances. Don’t be caught friendless when you need friends the most!

Coauthors Diane Gage Lofgren and Margaret Bhola’s book with the same name is completed and their literary agent is presenting it to publishers. The book provides insights to help you reach out to new friends, enjoy the friends you have, overcome friendship breakdown, find your fit within a group of friends, and show gratitude to your friends for all the blessings they bring.

    These posts are beautiful reminders of the importance of keeping connections with women that I care about, even through lots of times when I am too busy to do it all.

    I have five groups of women with whom I regularly meet for activities or meals. One group, The Hens, has been meeting since 1983. We so appreciate each other and the nourishment we provide as we pass through the stages of our lives. As I grow older (I am now 67) I feel I need these friends more and more. Years ago we shared stories about our men …during the next stage we shared our menopausal experiences…and now, in amazement at how fast time has flown, we share the joys of being older and wiser and the scary parts of the aging process as well. I feel so blessed to have so many courageous, compassionate and beautiful women in my life. I also have girlfriends who are not part of any group but who are just as important. Some have been with me since nursery school and some are new friends. Each one is totally unique in her own way and I learn from them all.
