Maybe you’ve been blessed with a sister that is also your best friend. But for the rest of us, that blessing comes when we create that same special bond with someone who, a while ago, was just a stranger.
Some people instantly click, others need more time to get to trust each other. You’ve probably heard about women who didn’t necessarily like each other at first and now, they’re inseparable. They share secrets, thoughts, they encourage and defend each other. Just like real sisters do.
