I will be eternally grateful for an enduring group of college friends who are my ride or die. No matter the time or distance between us, we show up for each other.
It is so refreshing to have a supportive group of individuals that isn’t tearing you down or judging your every last move. They know your best qualities and also those stories that you would much rather forget. You can fall back into yesteryear without skipping a beat and tell all those silly tales of when we were so naive and innocent.
From the mountains of NC, to the streets of Atlanta, to LRU football games, to 5k races, to beach getaways, to cabins in the VA countryside, to hikes up Stone Mountain, to basketball games, to meals at obscure diners, to tubing the Toccoa River in Blue Ridge GA, we always find an excuse to catch up.
These days even a quick text can make your day, as we try to survive the ups and downs of life. A group prayer or positive vibes go a long way. My tribe is beautiful in every way and I can’t wait for our next jaunt which is a big milestone….. our 25th college reunion!
