“Truly great friends are hard to find, difficult to leave, and impossible to forget.”
There are few friendships that last a lifetime and I am blessed for the dear ones I have. It especially means a lot when our children begin to develop those early friendships as well. I have a friend that we have known each other since our toddler days. Her daughter is three years older than Nat but became fast friends when Nat was just two years old. It's so nice to visit with the girls spending time with one another as my friend and I do the same.
I also am extremely blessed to be given a second chance with another that I have known since I was about 15 or so. We became best friends when I was about 18 and have had gone through tough times as well as good ones. I can't deny the presence and closeness that is so much a part of me and my own history. I am thankful to have her back in my life again. Now, she has a daughter that Nat calls her 'newest' friend. They came over today for an afternoon tea and it was lovely.
I know not all friendships are the same, varying in so many ways, but I am grateful for those He has put in my life...
