Readers who haven't seen the movie yet, may wish to stop reading now.
As a loyal SCTC watcher, I was pleased with the movie. I can't imagine the immense pressure the whole movie was under and part of the reason I wanted to see it as soon as possible after its release was so I wouldn't get caught up in the swells of the hype.
Both me and the movie succeeded. There were hot men, hot shoes, and clothes to be sure. But for me, the show and the movie have always at its heart been about friendship between women.
That to me was the true love story. Friends that have been there for every major milestone in your life but also are so involved in your daily life, you can discuss mundane things like which shampoo works best or what you might make for dinner.
And as the four women move throughout their lives, there's no doubt that they'll always be there for each other.
Strong women need other women. I don't think it makes them weak to admit such things.
Bad days get better when you've got a friend's shoulder to cry on, and happy news is best shared.
To all my friends, single and married:
thank you for helping me live this life, for believing the best of me, for encouraging me, for listening, and for always showing up.
