We grew up together. We have known each other longer than anybody else I know; expcept for maybe my parents. We have been together for 32 years now.
We shared getting our first bras, our first period, our first crushes, our first kisses........we married and started having babies and so we got to share morning sickness and the first flutter of our babies inside our growing bellies. We shared our first epistotomies and compared c-section scars. We compare notes on how to raise our teenagers.
And just a few days ago, she tells me, she is getting divorced. That is a path she will have to walk alone. Without me. And I am so sad. I am sad for her. I am sad for ME! My best friend is getting a divorce. And I am the one who feels DEVASTATED.
