What would I do without my friends?

• December 29, 2018

There’s a group of us who met here a few years back and  we bonded.  We’ve bonded to the point where we talk pretty much every day, we vent to each other, we cry to each other, we support each other, and we just gab.  We know each other’s spouses, their family’s names, their other […]
