My Grandmom has a few close friends that she has had FOR YEARS. They’ve stayed in contact and remained friends through babies and grandbabies, moves to different parts of the country, physical inabilities and great loss. That’s rare and it makes me happy to hear her cherish it.
When I asked her about the friendships, she said, “we were always transparent, honest and assuming the best of each other. We could work through anything because of this.”
There you have it.
I hope for you that you’re part of creating a friendship (or maybe even 3) that will be with you your whole life.
