Becky & I met years ago (8 years? 9 years?) through work. We emailed about inventory levels, purchase orders, and lead times. We emailed about the customer service manager that she thought was email-cute. We emailed about the boy that was super cute. We emailed about marrying the boy. We emailed about the baby with the boy. We emailed about life, loves, kids, work, weight, grey's, family, friends, hopes, dreams...pretty much every.little.thing.
Somewhere along the line, we even actually met. Still, I can probably count the number of times that we've been face-to-face on one hand.
She is the Christina to my Meredith. She is my person. She stands by me through dark & twisty, through bright & shiny, and through everything in between. We talk at least 5 days per week, and email virtually every day.
Last weekend...I went to visit. And it was good. It was ordinary-life-wine-dinner-kids-chatting-laughing-secrets-sharing good.
For that....and for her....I am very grateful.
