Old Friends

I received a wonderful surprise last week for my 40th birthday from an old, dear friend. We met in 1980 when we were 10 years old. I was new at the school that year but somehow managed to make a wonderful bond & connection with this person. I moved away 6 years later but somehow over the years we have managed to stay in touch and are like sisters even though we are several hundreds of miles and several states away from each other.

The surprise was a lovely vase of flowers with a beautiful note inside. Reminds me of a poem I had done in calligraphy in art class before I moved away and had ironically given to her as a keepsake.

"Make new friends, but keep the old. These are silver, those are gold."

She truly is a gold friend. :-)
