She Saw the Woman I Was Always Meant to Be

I remember the first time I met my lifelong best friend while auditioning for our high school dance team.  We both knew instantly that we would be friends for a very long time.  Within a 25-year friendship we can recall all of our major milestones together; graduations, marriages, births (we were pregnant for our babies at the same time), illnesses, deaths, as well as all of the simple moments in between.  She has seen me at my worst and at my best.  Her family is my family and mine is hers.  You all have this friend…the one who knows you better than you know yourself.  The one who stores all of your secrets. The one you could never replace or live without.
