Old Friend –

I wrote this two years ago for my friend.  It’s 2013…another year, another birthday.  I think I will re-post this every year for you Old Friend

I have an old Friend.   Friends since the eighth grade.  Who would have guessed, we were so different.  But in our differences we found our “same-ness”.  We had our own language, our own words.  We talked on the phone all night or until one of our Mothers caught us.  We both almost flunked Typing our Senior year because we didn’t do the assignments…we typed notes to each other.  We put thousands of miles on our parent’s cars just driving around.  We were nerds.  I think we probably still are.  We don’t talk on the phone all night anymore.  Our lives changed many years ago.  But, when we see each other…it’s just like old times.  We are old friends. Happy Birthday Old Friend!

  1. My comment went under MLK, but thankyou friend, old friend !!! Nothing will EVER change us! The post was for me and makes ME feel very special : )

  2. Just as beautiful post this year as last. Glad you’re still best friends, even if your lives have changed over time. It’s a special friendship that can be picked up again as if time and change hadn’t happened, and you were still talking all night, typing notes to each other, and logging all those miles.
    I hope you get to see her as often as possible!
