Meet Sara and Her Friend Geidy

G: Can you introduce us to your Other Mother?
S: My Other Mother is Geidy Achecar.  She's a mom to two beautiful kids and a busy lawyer.  We met when we both moved into the same neighborhood about six years ago.  She's one of the first friends I made when I moved to this new town.

G: What sets Geidy apart as a friend?
S: She's special to me because our interests seem to overlap. We can talk about big things: kids, religion, books, podcasts, politics, etc. OR we can talk about nonsense: makeup, hair, design - and every topic is addressed with enthusiasm and intense interest. It makes every conversation fun.
G: Do you have a favorite piece of advice she’s given you?
S: This is going to sound crazy but she taught me how to wear eyeliner and eye shadow. How did I get to 40 and nobody bothered to show me?!

G: What do you hope she knows about herself?
S: I hope she knows how impressive she is. She put herself through law school as a single mom with two kids. I also hope she knows how beautiful her curiosity is. She loves to learn. I like to think we have that in common.
G: If you were to write her a note for Other Mothers Day, what would you say?
S: Dear friend, I'm not sure you are aware of the influence you have had on me. I am so lucky to have found you so soon after moving here. I really needed a friend at that time. Despite all the challenges you have experienced, you seem to come through them with grit and grace. It's something I hope to emulate. Your personality is so magnetic that many are drawn to you. I hope we have many fun times ahead of us.
