Today I'm sending a special thanks to Meghann. We've long honored each other with the phrase "Best Friends Since We Were Two" but our friendship is much deeper than just an accumulation of the years we've known each other. Among the group of people I would consider to be my closest friends, I see Meghann the least - by far. Much of this has to do with the fact that we live nearly 500 miles apart, but even as kids we didn't see each other every day. We never went to the same school, we couldn't walk to each other's houses... the things that start most childhood friendships (being in class together, living next door to each other) were not a part of ours.
We clicked anyhow. And our families knew it. Thanks to them, we'd spend marathon weekends together. And as we grew older, Meghann would drive me to concerts; and I would visit her in college; and whenever we're both in the same place for holidays we make it a point to spend time together. There is much we have in common: our love for DMB, our love of the beach, our love of children... and there are many things we probably don't see eye-to-eye on. But that's part of who we are - as individuals and as dear friends - and the love and respect we have for each other will always win out in the end.
To Meghann: thanks for the blessing of your friendship... we've supported each other through heartaches and happiness, and I wouldn't be who I am today without you.
