My best friend

Jenna Dee

Apart from finding one’s true love and soul mate there is nothing more rewarding than having a lifelong friendship with a best friend.

True friendship withstands the tests of time and distance, and my friendship with Genevieve is proof of that.Genevieve and Jennie in 1983

We met as eleven year olds in our first year of  high school in 1972 and aside from the customary teenage spats we have been best friends ever since.

Like most ordinary middle-aged women we have endured our fair share of turbulence during our lives but we’ve always had each other to help us through rocky times.

Our monthly visits used to be chaotic when we were young women with six children under five years old between us. We often spent more time trying to keep the kids entertained than talking to each other. But we persisted because we knew our friendship was something special and neither of us was prepared to let it go.
