FRIEND in my Journey

Joyful Spring! We have waited so long in the North for the warmth of fresh sunshine, I have to sing some praises.
Today's prompt from the Gypsy Mama--word of comfort--FRIEND.

You have been with me, by my side for twenty-four years, over half of our lives! 
Not always literally by my side, but there in kindred spirit and heart.
The giggles of single girls sharing beach stories, shared expectations 
before my wedding night, secrets that only each other could understand.

Conversations filled with confusion trying to make sense of a Christian
circle gone bad. "I guess this is Good-bye."
Serious, stern words hold my gaze, "It will never be good-bye for us."
 Tears of joy and tears of sorrow.
Weddings, births, loved one passing through the valley.

Parting geographic locations with saddened hearts.
You are the one I call when the skies are dark, 
when they weight of the world presses me to the ground.
You always have a story or song to sing that makes me LOL-laugh out loud, really.
-laughter that bellows from deep down in our insides--did I say "potty"?

Walking this earthy journey together-kindred hearts.
I am so glad that you are my FRIEND.
