Friendship

Over Pesach, I started (and almost finished) reading the book "Pack Up the Moon" by Anna McPartlin, about a woman whose childhood sweetheart is killed in an accident and who must then try to move on with her life. It's not the typical chick book and I've really been enjoying it. The writing is good, the voices in the book very honest.

This passage in particular stood out:

"There's a sadness that comes with survival, but also more joy to be had. Although we had long ago realized that life isn't all roses and behind every silver lining lies a big dirty cloud, we also knew that we would always find comfort in one another."

Yup.
