We met as most kids do, we just randomly found each other playing on the block. My twin sister and I were 5 and we met Kim and Cindy. Cindy was also 5 and Kim was 4. Almost 44 years later and we are still friends. All bridesmaids in each other’s weddings and the type of friends you could go months without talking to and pick right up where you left off.
Cindy moved to Texas right after she got married 25 years ago. She comes home once a year, we have gone there as well. Lots of texts and Facebook connections have made staying in touch much easier. Her oldest daughter was my flower girl when she was just 2. Yesterday that flower girl got married and I wasn’t able to be there. The decided to get married on the anniversary of meeting… which fell on a Thursday… 2 days before Spring Break… in Texas. I am sad that we weren’t there but aunt Kim came to the rescue sending tons of pictures.
Just being kind of nostalgic today thinking about how fortunate I am to have such an amazing group of friends.
