Tonight a miracle might happen....
All 7 of us local girls may be able to make it to the same restaurant! This is a big deal seeing as there are 9 of us, 2 live out of state and all of the local girls ('cept me) have children, 2 have one each on the way.
"The Girls," have been raising hell since our high school days. We have been together ever since. Some of us went away to school, some stayed, some came back. It has never mattered we've always been in touch one way or another. A few interesting stats:
2 on the way
All but 2 of us married with in 2 years of each other
We are all very different people and that is something I love about our group. We all have different political positions, religions and family histories but we all seem to come together under the heading, 'friends'. I am not saying we've not had our dissagreements and misunderstandings but for almost 20 years we have all been together. While many friendships last that long, a group of nine, seems remarkable to me in a time where life moves so fast.
