Dinah Maria Craik
I’ve always had a tenous hold on this thing called friendship. It doesn’t come naturally to me as it seems to do with most people. It’s a hard thing for me to be real, and open, and let others see more than just the warts, but the true ugly side that I try my best to hide.
In the past four years, God has blessed me with an amazing group of girlfriends that I can do life with. Girls who have seen the ugly side, and still come back. Faithful friends. Friends who are just as real and raw and honest as I hope to be. And as Ms. Craik says, it is an inexpressible comfort.
PS For all of you long time and long distance friends, well, you deserve an especially big thanks. You are just as dear to me, however exempt you may be from my daily nuttiness:) You might actually be thankful for the ocean or continent between us!
