I moved a lot during my lifetime: growing up, in college and life after. Very few of my friends have made the journey with me. Most of them left me because of moving, crazy circumstances or fights. I am lucky enough to have new friends that mean just as much to me as if I had met them when I was two. But there are two that have known me forever (hey, Amanda) whom I care for deeply and today, I spent an hour with one of them. I have known her since I was thirteen and we have lived through failed marriages, births and death. I treasure knowing her and am lucky to have her even if we only see each other once in a blue moon.
FRIENDS FOR LIFE!
Our combined age is 79 and I am not telling who is older by six months. The point of my rambling about how much I love my friend is that it is ALWAYS important to take the ones you love; family, new friends and friends who have been around a lifetime, and embrace them. Love them. They are important. Don't forget it.
