Unlikely Friends

Tonight I hung out for the last time this semester with my friend Haley.  I love unlikely friends!  What I mean by that is: people who, upon meeting them, you would never, ever under any circumstances, expect to become friends with!  Haley is a freshman on our rugby team, and is younger that my sister, Kelsey.  When I first met her, I thought she was loud and obnoxious and distracting at practice.  However, over the course of this semester, somehow she has become one of my closest friends on the team!  I now know how to handle her loudness at practice, and understand her much better.  And she is wicked fun to be around!  I am totally pumped because in the fall, she will actually be my co-captain.  I'm so proud of her, she is a pleasure to be on the field with.  She's from Minnesota, so she's going back home tomorrow.  I'll miss her this summer!

To Anonymous: The song in the slideshow is called 'He Lives in You (Reprise)' and is from the musical The Lion King.  The song is special to the Kane family because while the Kanes were traveling to MSKCC in New York City to seek out treatments for Liam's relapsed NB, they got tickets to The Lion King on Broadway, and Liam and Ali were able to sit through the whole show!  This song was played at Liam's viewing and at the reception after his funeral.  It is so perfect for him, and all of the beautiful little ones lost to this disease.

it's always cool to make a friend when you least expect it

Unlikely friends are the best. My daughter heads to college in a year - hoping she gets on a soccer team so she can have unlikely friends of her own!
