shan day!!

hey, hey, hey ... i had a shan day!!

we had a girls date night. dinner, several drinks (yes!), then a movie - sex and the city. it was great. it was a mix of bday and just plain hanging out. and it was a really good time. with my shan.

i've known shan for a long while now. since i don't kow when though really. i just know she was still in high school i think. i was already back in atlanta, or in new york. our moms work together are decent friends. in these last several years or so, shan has become so very important to me. even more than 'like' a little sister. the thing is, is that i don't know when. but i know how. we've become close because she has such a warm, caring, genuine, selfless way about her. you know, all those words. but she is those words. the meaning of those words. and is so humble and matter a fact about it. because she is those words. i love her.

shan has a way of keeping up with me. we'll have these 'check ins' every few weeks or so. and when i'm under the weather, or getting ansy and climbing the walls (she has a keen sense about that with me!), she'll come rescue me and off we go, to the starbucks down the street for chit chat and great company. and we talk about all sorts of stuff. she's such a great listener.

i love her. truly. deeply. and i respect and admire her. and her courage. especially now. she's going through a rough patch right now and has had to make some tough decisions. ones that i'm certain many of us couldn't make. there's somehing about her. really. very special. and i love her.

you see, i am just so blessed. blessed with wonderful people in my life like my shan. and i do hope and wish that you all are blessed to have someone in your life like my shan.

i love you shan :)

Good Sister friends can make all the difference. Some you see everday and others you may just meet for the first time and feel like you have known them all your life!
