Do you remember your best friends, from grade school, from high school, from college, from that first job? It’s someone we all have, sometimes in fact it’s the same person through every part of our life.
I have had many best friends in my life, I can remember their names and their faces (and even some of them I remember their phone number!). They all have a special place in my heart.
But there is one friend, who I met at the beginning of grade 11 way back in 1981 (yikes – almost 40 years!), that was my best friend almost instantly from the time we met. We just clicked. Well, time moved on and we kept in touch for a few years after we both left our hometown. Marriage happened for both of us, and then kids, and as it sometimes happens, we drifted apart. But then, on my 40th birthday, my mother had run into her and we re-connected at my party. And 15 years later, I can still call her my best friend.
Well this incredibly lovely lady, who has gone through many things in her life, is about to embark on a wonderful and courageous new journey in her life, and I am SO excited for her and I know she is going to be amazing.
We spent all afternoon together today, I was helping her pack up the rest of her place (which I am taking over as of September 1st!), and I helped her start up her blog. I want to share her story and her journey and this amazing time in her life with all of you, and I hope you will all enjoy her blogs, as much as I enjoy the best friendship in the world.
Her blog is https://leapingintotheunknowndotca.wordpress.com/about/ and I just know she is going to succeed in this!
