31 Year Friendship
We have even lived together, which is a sure fire way to kill any friendship. I think we have had all of one argument in our friendship, and even that was via email (terrible medium for sorting out differences) and we ended each email with "sent with love".
We both have a strong group of friends that we can count on in a second, but our friendship is something special and enduring. Row has been a constant support to me through various tumultuous times including three miscarriages, which most friends in my experience, find very hard to relate to and end up saying just the wrong thing. Thank goodness for Rowena who has listened to me cry and rant and rave and have crazy ideas and always supports me. We have gone months without contact and can get on the phone (Row and I live in different states) and it feels like we just chatted the day before.
So thanks Row for 31 years of a beautiful friendship, and I think we have at least another 50 in us. We will be the two little old ladies with our cups of tea who after 81 years of knowing each other, still can chat non-stop.
