… and now anyone who grew up in the 80s/90s is singing “if the Lord’s the Lord of them.” Sorry about that 😛
The reason for today’s topic is that I am currently in the town where I grew up, celebrating my 40th (yikes) birthday a couple of weeks early with two of my best friends. I’ve known these girls since we were in 2nd grade, and their birthday is the day before mine (they are twins). No matter how far apart we live, no matter how long we go without talking voice to voice or face to face, we remain the dearest of friends who love Jesus and love each other fiercely.
That led me to think about friends in fiction.
I think probably my fave friends in fiction are Nancy Drew and her chums Bess and George. I also think of Emma & Knightley, Sherlock & Watson, Darcey & Bingley, Wilbur and Charlotte … and of course Winnie the Pooh and Christopher Robin.
These are all ‘classics’ of a sort though.
What about in today’s fiction landscape? What are some of your favorite friendships in fiction?
