There are some people who come into your life and stay forever despite the ups an downs of life and the distance that comes when moving hundreds of miles away. For some it may seem that it takes an effort to maintain a friendship where you no longer see each other face to face each week, but for me it has been anything but effort.
I believe that true friends can be apart and remain close because there is an energetic pull that keeps two people connected. The foundation that my friend and I created years ago is the solid footing that has kept our sacred friendship intact.
Saturday morning bike rides to get coffee, breakfasts out, hiking weekly, laughing until we are literally leaking in places we should not be leaking, sacred weekends in Sedona, exploring spirituality, eating amazing food together and so much more was the brick and mortar that built our friendship.
Because we had those years of creating memories when we have each been handed life challenges since she moved to another state our friendship has only deepened. Without any doubt in my mind, I know that no matter what is happening in our lives, we have each others back. We have the unconditional and most sacred kind of friendship where there is no space for judgment or comparison–it is simply pure love.
This past weekend I hopped on a plane to surprise her as this amazing soul is embarking on a journey that is going to test her to her core. It has been three years since I saw her face and it was a moment that I will never forget. Her weeping and laughing all at once was absolutely perfect.
My heart will be full of love for her in the coming weeks and months. I am surrounding her and her family with light and love. I am honoring her life, her journey and her incredible strength.
She is my best friend. She is my hero. She is my inspiration.
After all , her motto is–Live, Laugh, Love.
