    On the 1st day of 1st grade, Rose came home and said “Mom, I have a new best friend. Her name is Reva”.

    Reva and Rose were inseparable throughout lower and middle school, two little peas in a pod. Until 8th grade when Reva skipped a grade and headed straight to high school.

    Reva went off to college, with Rose a year behind. They kept in touch, but didn’t see each other often as often a natural progression. Reva graduated and moved to Michigan to start her career. Rose settled in Washington state to continue her education.

    On a recent call with Rose, she could barely contain her excitement-

    Mom. Guess who’s coming to visit me???

    Reva!!

    There is something about a best friend. No matter the miles no matter the time, a best friend bond is never broken.

    I have the same feeling of giddiness whenever my childhood best friend calls on the phone, “Tybee” it reads, my special nickname for her. She is my Reva.

    Friends are wonderful in all stages of life, but particularly grateful for our children’s Best friends.

    Aw, Zebee- I love this and know who you’re taking about 😜

    Love this! We moved when our son was in 1st grade and he made his 1st best friend. Then we moved when our son was in 10th grade. The boys still txt/snap/insta (whatever you call it) even though they’re at different colleges and every summer they get together. Such a special bond. There is no one like your 1st best friend.
