But then that couple split & I knew we wouldn't see as much of each other. It also happened during the first few months of my life as a new mom. I was going through the biggest change of my life & that probably lessen the impact of what the split meant to & for me. But I understood that she needed to be away from the group. I knew she was making some big changes too. Our friendship was going to have to change. And that was ok. Over the past 5 years, we see each other when we can. And each time it feels good. Our relationship is sort of like a good soap opera, but without the drama. We can get together after a couple months & pick right up again. She's hilarious, laid back, talented, & extremely supportive. I know that when I need encouragement or good advice that she's stocked up to her eyeballs with it & will generously dole it out.
Yesterday & every day, I'm grateful for my friend Amy.
