I can still remember when my mother sat me down to watch a movie just released, but certain to be a favorite. And "Beaches" soon became one of my favorites, too. I will always remember her saying, "every woman can only hope to have a friendship like CC and Hilary." Even then, I knew she was speaking of her own friendship between my sweet Aunt Zandy and herself, but it wasn't until I was an adult, watching it yet again, that I fully began to understand a friendship like theirs. As cliche' as it may sound, it's true. Friendship like that is rare, and not something everyone gets to experience. As I sat down tonight and watched it with my own daughter, I couldn't help but feel joy thinking of the many friendships I hold dear... But the friendship that means the most came to mind and I couldn't help but choke up thinking how much my mother loved this song, and how she was so right about finding a friendship like CC and Hilary's. And so, this is for my sister; the friendship that holds me together. It's taken nearly 20 years after my mother's death to sing it, but now, at this moment, it means something much deeper than a childhood memory and a classic movie favorite.
