Partly because some friends of mine and I were talking about things that have happened in our lives and how we could write a book about it. It got me thinking about all of those things and how we have been there for each other in so many different circumstances.
Partly because I was watching The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Melissa's friend from her younger days, Amber, confronted Melissa about not contacting her when she had "the cancer". I quote "the cancer" because that's what she actually said. I shall now refer to cancer as "the cancer". Anyway, Melissa and Amber were friends and Amber was in Melissa's wedding and then they grew apart & didn't see each other for many years. Amber had "the cancer" and was upset that her old friend did not reach out to her.
And then the kicker was Wendy Williams. (Yes, I watch trash TV. Sue me.) Wendy mentioned that she wasn't friends with the people who were in her wedding many years ago.
All of this got me to thinking.....true friendships are very special. I don't have a ton of friends, but I do have a few true friends. And I'm so happy to say that all of the girls who were in my wedding almost 20 years ago are still part of my life. They wore the worst bridesmaids dresses EVER and they are still my friends - that's gotta say something.
