My sister took a few days off to visit her son and friend of hers. She met her friend in high school – more than 40 years ago – and they became very close. After graduation they stayed in touch on and off during marriages and children. The last time they saw each other was 7 years ago for a high school reunion. My sister said when they reconnected, they just picked up where they left off. That is the blessing of a true lifelong friend. When they were visiting this time, they decided to recreate one of their favorite photos from high school. They did a great job, complete with hands in jeans pockets, holding a notebook, and purse slung over the back. While the 43 years of life experience had changed their appearance slightly, the friendship they have was still evident.
I Found God today in a long time friendship.
