Old Friends Are A Treasure

I had lunch with some old high school friends this week. We are all in our sixties and each of us have faced some difficult challenges in life.

I was so touched by the kind, wise, nonjudgmental, loving woman each friend had become. I felt privileged to be in their company. 

I wanted to stay and talk longer, but life has a way of keeping you moving ahead when you'd like to linger for a while.

Estella, Carol, Pat, Jeanie and Lisa. Thank you for being my friend and for all the life lessons and love we shared with each other. 

Our visit reminded me of the words to a song, "Make new friends but keep the old. One is silver and the other gold." 

You are gold.
