Honey and Celeste have been dear friends since school. And though they are separated now by a few state lines they are still best of friends. They were there for each other in school, dating, weddings, and now babies! What a true friend to fly up and celebrate with you the birth of your first born son. Their love for each other was so beautiful.
I was at a wedding of a wonderful couple this summer where the best man shared a story that brought me to tears. It was about friendship. When they were young they both tried out for a basketball team. It was clear that the more skilled of the pair was going to make the team and the shorter of the two would probably not make the cut. The groom (then a teenager) went up to the coach and explained that he was a package deal. If the coach wanted him and the skills and height he brought to the table, his best friend was coming two. And the two both made the team. As I sat there with a few tears rolling down my cheek I felt so uplifted. It is so good to know that there are people in the world that are true friends, like the two men from a summer wedding and the two women that kept me company in the studio.
Preston I hope that there is a friend born just for you. Someone to have your back and multiply the good in your life while sharing life’s burdens.
