Who is your BFF?
Alison and Val in Carolina Reckoning have this kind of friendship. A friendship with lots of backstory.
Sometimes there are friends for the season of the road we travel. Other friends are like a bright thread of hope and love that wend through all our days.
I have been so richly blessed with friends to share life’s journey. Here’s to you—you know who you are.
I never think of Star Wars or the NC State Fair without remembering my BFF in high school.
I will never forget being with my mommy friends at a MOPS meeting when the first plane hit the World’s Trade Center on 9/11 and the phones starting ringing. And our world changed forever.
I’ll never forget the friendships of my youth. Or as Anne of Green Gables puts it, “There is no bond more lasting than that formed by the mutual confidences of that magic time when youth is slipping from the sheath of childhood and beginning to wonder what lies for it beyond those misty hills that bound the golden road.”
A friend who has stuck by my side through difficult pregnancies, a miscarriage and the adventure of raising daughters.
Friends who have come into my life because of the writing journey and how blessed I am for it.
Thank you all for being my friend. You continue to enrich my life.
I’d love to hear about your own BFFs and what that friendship has meant to you.
Remember—It takes a long time to grow old friends.
And my prayer for you—May your house always be too small to hold all of your friends.
