This girl is so dear to my heart. It’s amazing how we’ve held such a tight friendship over the years inspite of always being thousands of miles apart. She’s lived in Idaho and Washington, and I’ve lived in Minnesota and Arizona. Whenever we talk we pick right up where we left off. Theresa has always been there for me, and I’m honored to have her be such a big part of my life.
A few years ago she got married to a navy man. And just this last year they had their first baby. I wanted (really, really wanted) to meet the new additions to her life. Finally the time came. She called me up and shared the news that her husband was going to be stationed in Guam and they were moving there for at least the next three years. That’s when I realized it’s now or never. I bought a ticket and was on my way to Seattle!
I’m so thankful I made the decision to go see my friend. It was such a special trip, and I will hold onto those memories for the rest of my life.
