Friendship

My friend Karen is here for a couple days. We've been friends since we were twelve. We shared a locker through all four years of high school, tried to share a dorm room in college....(ok, that wasn't a good idea), we have shopped, laughed, and cried together for almost 30 years.

Here we are celebrating my 18th birthday with (some terribly cheap) champagne


and earlier this year at my grandmother's memorial service.


Thanks for always being there, my friend.

Lifelong friends are brilliant...and pretty much family.

Life is so short, but getting together with old pals make it seem like only yesterday, we all need to stay more connected.

Nothing is more special than friendship, good friends laugh and cry with us. So lucky to have a good pal.

Hey Harriet said...

Sounds like you'll have a fun weekend ahead. Enjoy your time with your friend. Those sorts of friends are to treasure. & if the same size, to steal their clothes ;D

it's great having a friend for this long. there's nothing you can really hide from each other. my friend since 7 years old, is also my kids' godparent. Sadly she lives in Sydney so we don't meet as often as I wished!

Old friends are like the threads that hold the fabric of our lives together.

Friends like that are "keepers." Try to keep in contact as much as possible in the future, you'll gain so much in return.

Wow - you two are not looking much older - really! I've only known my best friend for five years. How great that you two have known each other forever!

This is so sweet and it makes me feel a bit sad that I missed my own friend's birthday recently. Or maybe it reminds me to celebrate those times we actually do spend together!!
