Some are my besties from home. I love them for letting me learn who I was. Home life wasn't always easy for me, so the theater became home. And in every theater there seems to be a group of "regulars"....these were my peeps! LOL My Lord, the stories they could tell (DON'T YOU DARE! I know some too, after all!) We shared many adventures and I can talk to one of them after months or even years apart and it's like we are picking up from yesterday. (I was "the baby" of that group. This is funny to me now, because I am 51 and STILL the baby! LOL Ya'll are OLD! )
There are the friends of my young adult life. These folks knew me at work as a medical professional and outside work as a nutcase! These folks endured the drama of my and Joe's courtship and marriage and helped me welcome my babies into the world. They taught me what it was like to be a grown up. What love and commitment are. They are examples every day of the kind of person I want to be. I love them with all my heart.
I think that God brings people into our lives when we need them. Or when the need us. But always just at the right moment. True friends are a great blessing and a priceless gift for which I am most grateful.
