{October 15, 2010}   The Blessings of Old Friends

The older I get, the more I realize how special it is to have friends that knew you when:

—How wonderful it is to have had shared experiences that have become shared memories

—To feel a comfort from knowing your friends’ family members, siblings and parents, and watch their children grow up

—To savor the wonder you feel when you recognize that the number of years they have been in your life is longer than the years without them

—To be able to tell a story in a very general way and take for granted that they know the details

–and finally, for me, to have them know you are writing about them without having to use their names, and know that they are smiling when they read, appreciating the words.

My friends are always on my gratefulness list and always will be.
