It started after a gathering of church ladies. They got to chatting and the minutes turned into hours. There was an instant kinship. Two very different looking women, but cut from the same cloth, from the same roots. As if part of a long, forgotten tribe.
They talked, sharing stories and laughter. This was the beginning of a lifelong friendship. One of sharing their joys, accomplishments, marriages, children, and faith. No secrets were too dark. It was an intimate relationship, as if they were sisters from the same clan, separated long ago, but now reunited. This deep friendship does not disintegrate with age or distance. The thread that binds them together is woven too deeply in heart and in spirit. They both feel such gratitude that, in this life, they found each other, and they hold the belief their friendship will continue into the next.
