I had the pleasure of seeing two of my best friends in September for my friend Emma’s wedding. I can’t even tell you how good it felt to see Emma and Bobbi for the first time in a long time. We talk every single day via a group text and not a day goes by where I don’t think about how lucky I am to have those two girls in my life.
When I got pregnant, a lot of my friends were right there by my side. Excited for me and excited to meet our sweet Alea when she was born. A few stuck around after the birth, but as my life changed so suddenly and drastically, those relationships with friends who weren’t going through the same thing as me, drifted away. It makes sense, you know? It’s hard to relate to someone who isn’t in the same position in life as you.
Emma and Bobbi, though? They’ve been by my side through it all. Not literally by my side, but I know they’re always a phone call or a text away. When we met up again at Emma’s wedding, it was as if not a moment had went by. It was as if we didn’t all three live in three different states and it was as if we had all just seen each other the day before.
Our friendship never skips a beat.
I’m eternally thankful for those sweet girls.
I feel so guilty for feeling sad and upset over losing so many friends prior, because as cheesy as it sounds, it’s really not about quantity at all. It’s about quality and that’s exactly what Emma and Bobbi are– quality, true, and incredible friends.
I love you ladies!
