This room at the top of the stairs is where my sweet friend stayed last week.
I made sure the pillows were poofed and fresh flowers were ready for her.
She didn't care that there's not a chair in the room.
We sat on the floor and talked like good friends do.
We talked about our kids when they were little and our kids now in their 20s.
We talked about husbands and dogs and parents and cooking.
We reminisced about our old neighborhood and how blessed we were to all land in the same place.
I told her she could easily make her own upholstered headboard.
She told me about all the cute clothes she's selling at her part time job after she teaches school all day.
We talked about wood floors and cabbage soup and college expenses and Hilton Head.
We talked about babies and menopause and how we're trying our best to maintain our weight.
It was like we were never ever apart.
Real friendships are like that.
I love my friends.
