Today I spent three hours with old friends. You know those friends that you laugh so easy with, that you reminisce about old times with and that you never want to leave. Twenty five years melted away and we were young again, reliving those happy, overwhelming, and loving days.
Together we raised our kids, sang around campfires (one even melted a tennis shoe that got a little too close to the campfire), went to family camp, taught Sunday school together, wrote Vacation Bible School curriculum (from scratch), shared recipes, made crafts except for Carol (now she's scrapbooking!) and supported each others dreams.
Today family pictures were passed around and new ones were taken at the restaurant halfway between. I miss them already...it was difficult to say goodbye.
Stay in touch and cherish your friends,
