However, putting this together and delivering it proved to be more challenging than I had anticipated. First, my friend drives me crazy half the time and writing this, I realised that I took a lot of her amazing qualities for granted.
Anytime I expressed my happiness and excitement for her there was always someone there to compare our personal lives and tell me to “tap into her blessing” or ask me “So, when is your own?”.
