I love my Polar Bear.
We were friends in high school and kept in touch for about a year after I graduated (the year ahead of her) then lost track of each other for about 15 years.
Several years ago, thanks to Facebook or MySpace, we ran across one another again, and it was absolutely as though not a single day had passed.
She is there for me. I am there for her. We are sisters. We've gone through some seriously tough times together and I love her a ridiculous lot!
Oh, and! Her wee ones are two of the most fabulous little creatures ever created.
it's a wonderful thing.
