F is for Friendship

Ruchama Schnaidman

The best thing about having a best friend is… Wait, you’ve heard me say that before, haven’t you? Well, okay, I’ll admit, there’s lots of benefits to having a best friend and you can’t really blame me for always thinking I’ve found the one reason that outweighs all the rest. That’s just the way it is when you have something really good. You’re grateful for it one day, and then more grateful the next.

I’m a little embarrassed to talk about that drawer, even to you, okay? So, I’m sure you can imagine how I felt the day Penina stood up from my bed, where we had been hanging out (studying for our math test, ha-ha) and walked over to my dresser.
