It was the day of my Fathers funeral and Sarah walked out of her office to come get me, knowing full well she could lose her job over it. But I had called, and everything else didn't matter to her, I was the most important thing. That is the best way to descibe our 15 year friendship. When she got endo and was told she couldn't carry kids, I told her I'd be the surrogate. When no one else made the trip to the coast for her 21st, I worked over time to do it. When my family crumbled, she was the first one to be there, and the only one with tissues. My best memories involve her and my worst had her by my side. Despite predictions she has had her miracle child, and is pregnant with her second. The greatest honor in my life was when she asked me to be John (her first miracle) godmother.
Her and her fiance, a RAF pilot have finally set a much awaited wedding date! She's asked me to be bridesamaid and walk her son down the aisle. I wouldnt miss this if I have to sell everything I own. See she's in England, I'm in South africa, and the rand is not what we call strong. I'm hoping that the global community will help a girl see her best friend on her fairytale day.
I plan to be there for 10 days, I have her couch and she's promised to feed me, but I need to get there. If you would like to pledge, even a pound, dollar, rand, I would be overwhelmingly grateful, and I know so would she.
