Make New Friends, But Keep the Old........

Tuesday, June 14, 2011

Make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver, the other is gold.

A circle is round, it has no end. That's how long, I will be your friend.

A fire burns bright, it warms the heart. We've been friends, from the very start.

You have one hand, I have the other. Put them together, We have each other.

Silver is precious, Gold is too. I am precious, and so are you.

You help me, and I'll help you and together we will see it through.

Across the land. Across the sea. Friends forever, we will always be!

Recently, I had a HUGE treat. I was able to host my dear friend Rebecca and her family for the weekend. They live in Virginia -- like us, a long way from San Diego, California, where we were raised. They were passing by on their way to vacation in Yellowstone. Rebecca and I were pretty much stuck-like-glue as teenagers. What fun memories we share. The photo on the left is us at church camp in 1976 ... I think we look the same although 35 years older (and SIX children between us), lol! Such a lovely visit we had and I look forward to getting to visit again before another 13 years passes us by :)

  1. You're so good about keeping in touch all these years. Loved the pictures. I believe we sang that first song in Brownies many years ago.

    How exciting it must have been to see each other again! I have a friend from my childhood..we were neighbors. We finally 'found' each other again through facebook a couple of years ago! It's been fun catching up!
