Friendship is a single soul dwelling in two bodies. - Aristotle
I was reminded this weekend, when my friend Melissa came to town, just how much the validation of your friends can help you see yourself and your circumstances in a better light. We share so many similiarities, but having a chance to peel back the layers and share innermost thoughts and challenges and memories knowing that the other person can hear you and in some way makes you stronger, clearer...calmer in the eye of any emotional storm.
I needed this time, more than I even realized. And I was aware, to begin with.
