My two lifelong best friends are Emilys, too. Together, we are a force to be reckoned with. If we made a list, I would venture to say our differences outnumber our similarities, but that only sweetens our friendship. None of us bring the same thing to the table, but that’s what keeps us longing to gather around the table again. God has blessed us with so many years of friendship, through so many unspeakable trials and incredible joys, that we have nothing left to pretend about. When we are together, we let it all hang out.
