This post is a bit unusual. I’m just struck this morning by what a treasure a good friend is. This one came to me unexpectedly and no one would’ve thought we’d get so close. But here we are, spending all our Saturdays together, deep in this thing called friendship which looks mundane sometimes and even hilarious and silly sometimes. She’s one of the losses I’m going to feel the deepest when August 1 rolls around and we roll off to Indiana.
