It’s a shame that this is the weekword for today of all days – I haven’t been able to draw a breath today and will be away from my computer for a week. Which means I have a few minutes to try to do justice to a wonderful word, chosen by John.
I’m lucky to have been blessed with some wonderful friends – friends who’ve been by my side as I’ve nursed broken hearts, who’ve made me laugh until I’ve cried, who’ve helped me move house, paint hallways, draft papers. Who have stood beside me as I’ve got married and been with me as I’ve given birth. None of those experiences would have been the same without them. My friends are the family I’ve chosen, and they add savour to my life, and new depths of colour to my experiences, and I love them all.
