F is for Friendship

Ruchama Schnaidman

Best friends tell each other everything. Don’t they? If you had asked me that question last week, I’d have said: “Yes. No doubt. Obviously.”

Tuesday, April 28, 2015

Penina was the first to know when I got into camp and she was the only one I told about the special present my grandmother gave me for my birthday. Of course, when Penina found out that her brother was getting engaged, she shared her secret with me. But if you asked me that question right now, I’d probably mutter an answer that would sound something like: “Well I don’t really know if I really have to do that.” You want to know what made me change my mind? Well, I’ll tell you, but please be open-minded and don’t judge me, okay, because the same way I’m nervous about talking about this with my very best friend, I’m kinda uncomfortable talking about it here too. Deal?
