Whether it’s a birthday, anniversary or Mother’s or Father’s Day, special occasions are great show stoppers. They cause us to pause and reflect on the special people in our lives. Today, National Women’s Friendship Day, is a great time to recognize the women in our lives who mean the most to us. At Women I Want to Grow Old With, we call these women intention holders – those women in our lives who are by our side no matter what. They are our women on speed dial, who we call when our world is light and filled with joy or when all hell breaks loose.
We hope you’ll take some time today, or in the near future, to let the women who are your soul sisters and confidants know how much they mean to you – and how much you care about them. Whether it’s a phone call, email, text, card, or e-card expressing our gratitude is the best gift we can give.
How do you say “thank you” to your intention holders? Here’s just a starter list from women we’ve spoken with:
- Send a postcard from the road to say, “I’m thinking of you”
- Offer to take one thing off her to-do list
- Make a gratitude visit or call to count the many ways she lights up your life
