This is a very new feeling for me. To have friends I can call on without reservation, without doubt, and without fear. To have friends who will laugh with me and cry with me, be honest with me, share their lives with me and be a part of mine. Friends who will welcome me into their families unreservedly, and just as easily merge into mine.

We’ve traveled together, cooked together, slept together, taken care of each other’s kids and pets, picked each other up when it was needed, and calmed each other down at times too. Heck, we’ve even stalked knitting celebrities together 😉 (But NOT STEPHANIE!!!! NEVER STEPHANIE! WE’RE NOT STALKERS!!! We *are* Canadian, however, which apparently makes us mostly harmless – Yarn Harlot’s own words!) There’s no judgment, there’s no backstabbing, and there’s no resentment. Just easily enjoying each other’s company.

To have such fantastic women in my life is a joy and a wonder to me. It’s not something I’ve ever experienced before, and I cherish it.

And as an aside, this was my status on Facebook tonight, and apparently I’ve become cool enough for people to start stealing my status and posting it as their own:

Here’s hoping that all the extra candles on this final 

night of Chanukah shine a bit of extra light toward 

those who need it.
