I was reflecting on this a couple of days ago. When I saw my girl (who is totally my little girl and not a 18 year old technically adult woman, shut up, there’s no way that much time has passed) looking concerned while texting.
Turns out she was talking to her friend in India, who was asking about their friend in Israel. The friend in Israel had not been in contact for some days and they were getting worried.
From the ease and familiarity displayed, you might have thought they were all living on the same street. These are real friendships.
