Last night, my old, dear, wonderful, besty friend, Amy, arrived in DC. We met freshman year of college, nearly 17 years ago. ARGH- half of my life ago. Anyway, we were immediate friends and have been the best of ever since, despite the fact that she lives in southern Cal, and I have, since graduation, flitted north and south along the Eastern seaboard. Sadly, we haven’t, before yesterday, seen each other in nearly 5 years.
It was immediately like old times. What a rare sort of relationship that can withstand all the years, life changes, distance and lack of actual facetime. I feel immensely grateful. Cheers to you Amy Sue!
