We’ve been doing it for over a year now, and it still amazes me how this one act of writing to each other has kept us together. Sure, we each have our own friends in our new hometowns who may know more about our day-to-day than these “history friends.” But these are the women that I text when I have an urgent prayer request. They’re the ones I think of when I just need to be my crazy, emotional self and I know they won’t judge me.
