Some of us have been friends for 25 years. We've experienced Bible school together, first loves, parties, concerts, birthdays, church softball, boybands (Casey!), weddings — including many bachelorette parties — sicknesses, births, deaths, parenting woes, marriage woes, fights, tears and so very, very much laughter.
This group of girls, my best friends, have been crutches to lean on in hard times, have laughed at my quirky, not-very-funny jokes and have helped me learn how to be a better person.
