I am lucky to have such a person in my life. We met in Girl Scouts, oh so many moons ago. It was in sixth grade though when we really became the best of friends and that has endured ever since. We grew up together sharing all the major milestones of our teen years and college days. We have stumbled our way through adulthood - sometimes kicking and screaming and sometimes rejoicing in it.
She is the one person that truly understands me, my idiosyncrasies, my moods, and she is just accepting of it all. No questions, no poking fun, no trying to change it, just lending quiet support.
Despite living 1200 miles apart, our friendship has never wavered. I am so grateful for that and so blessed.
My goal with the challenge this year is to use it as an exercise to write something focused on a particular emotion. I hope to convey that mood or feeling through word choice in the story. I welcome your feedback on what worked or didn’t for you in each piece.
