From Student Affairs Women Talk Tech the prompt is <insert drumroll> “Pick a relationship, any relationship, and describe what makes it special to you.”
Wow, this is a tough one. Do I do revealing or stay safe. I’m not much of a ‘gushy gusher’ unless you ask me about my kids. And why did I pick this week to try and get back on the blogging train? HMM??
Oh well, on with it then. I’m going to use this prompt as a way to say thank you to one of my long long long (yes, we are getting that old) time friends Suz (aka S to my J).
S and I met on line 17ish years ago when our youngest kids (Emmy and Bry) were just babies! We’ve been through a LOT together, and sometimes gotten into some good natured trouble together.
S was there through my divorce, when I met TheRPh, the moves, the hours and days and years of school. We’ve lost touch once or twice because life just gets in the way.
What makes our relationship special? The fact that we can go months, and at one point years, without talking and then pick right back-up like almost no time as passed. We don’t exchange hours and hours of phone calls or chat sessions like we use to. We don’t visit several times a year as we did in days past. But she still knows where the bodies are buried, where my heart is, and what truly matters to me. Through all of it she is always on my side.
When I see cute little sayings like “We will be friends until we are old and senile…then we’ll be new friends!” I think of S.
Thanks S, and I love you MOSTEST!
