That's me and my best good friend JoJo - for almost 20 years now. She is a spicy, sassy, opinionated, adorable Italian - with dark eyes and olive skin. Her natural curls fall to her shoulders and bounce when she walks or laughs or turns her head. We have been friends since 1992. We have lived and shared everything; from births to deaths, illness, wellness, holidays, birthdays, just because days and drank enough wine together to paralyze a small army. Our sons are also best friends - and her husband and mine like, respect, appreciate each other and do 'guy' things together - like the Red Sox/Yankees game this past August.
I am lucky to have a best good friend. I can tell her anything and I never worry about judgment or an 'eye-roll' or a raised eyebrow. We trust each other with our secrets and we celebrate our joys and agonize over our sorrows. JoJo and I are forever friends - of the heart.
I appreciate, value, and honor the gift of friendship. Some friends have gone - some I still miss and wonder why they left - some I remember and also I know that our friendship was for a season, a reason, and not a life time. My good and amazing friend Sophie (Ashley) and I often talk about the friend we each have that we would throw ourselves in front of a train for - Hers is Danielle, and mine is JoJo. Although we both also know that we would do that for each other too, and also for Dale and Tina - the 'pajama party' group. JoJo, like her Danielle have had that place the longest - the jump in front of the train place. And now there are four! Wow!
Here's to friendship and trains! :-)
