The twins

At the start of my college career I met twins from a small town in Kansas. We lived down the hall from each other in a female-only dorm. The three of us quickly became inseparable. We shared secrets. We shared adventures, some in a foreign country. We laughed – a lot.

After losing touch for several years, one of the twins sent me a message on Facebook: “You should know you were instrumental in helping me become ‘me’ back in college – I look back on our time together and you truly helped me feel good in my own skin and push my boundaries.”

I could not have been more shocked when I read her message. I did that? Back in the day, we were goofballs just trying to get our footing in life. I had forgotten that my actions – everyone’s actions – no matter how big or small, good or bad…our actions make ripples, and ripples can become waves.

I thanked her for those words, and I did then what I should have done years ago. I told her how much she meant to me. Now as I write this post, I realize two more years have slipped by. But the great thing about true friendship is that you can pick up where you left off. BRB. I’m going to check in on my friend.
