Good. Old. Friends.

Yesterday my grandmother and I drove into the desert to visit a friend she has known since grade school. They both turned 91 this month and have not seen one another in over 20 years, but have kept their friendship going through phone calls every week. It was a gift to witness a connection between two women that has lasted more than 80 years and is a great reminder of how meaningful and important true friendship is.
I am so thankful for the women in my life who listen, encourage, support, and laugh with me while we journey through this crazy world.

What a beautiful gift to give to your grandmother, and in case I haven't told you lately, you are one amazing and thoughtful grand daughter!
