Women | Life | Wisdom: The Importance of Friends

I have a ‘best friend forever’ who I met when we were both 18. We share a birthday Month, which is coming up and we are turning 58. As I was typing this, it occurred to me that we have been friends for 40 years, wow!

We see each other once a year at the most and talk, text or email every few months, so there is not a lot of contact. She lives in a different city, in another province.

We occasionally travel together!

We make each other laugh like no other. She recently sent me an email and every time I remember her words, I break into a giggle. She referenced her bridesmaid dress for my wedding, a cigarette and breaking the rules and it was nothing about smoking. I’ll let your imagination flow on this one. I’m still chuckling.

All this is to say that I love her and treasure our longstanding and deep friendship!

Love you Barb!
