I am doing two days today – one now, one later. Bad fibro flare derailed a large chunk of yesterday night.
I am grateful for friendship. But specifically I am grateful for THIS friendship:
You know how there are people you meet and think, “Oh. It’s my old best friend who I haven’t met yet.” and you go on as if you had known each other all your lives and hope that you DO get to know each other all of your lives? This would be one of those friends. It’s a sort of Anne of Green Gables kindred spirit kind of thing. Except she’s probably Anne, she’s just that cool. It’s okay, I don’t mind being Diana.
She makes me laugh, she gets me into the *worst* kind of mischief (which is really the best) and then gets me out of it, teaches me silly drinking songs, is willing to eat chocolate cake and champagne at midnight with stuffed animals, mopped up my tears during my very worst, darkest times this fall, has patiently listened to me vent and process for hours and did not tell me to move on and get over it until I was ready to just move on and get over it, and she is also my go-to gal for all things Zombie Apocalypse related.
Nicole, I am SO glad I met you, SO glad I know you, and really looking forward to more years of knowing you better. There aren’t enough words for how grateful I am for the gift of your friendship.
And I will see you next weekend. With cake. ❤
