Friendship — the fabric of life
Do you have friends you have known for many years that no matter what happens, no matter how long between the times you see each other, it is like you saw each other yesterday? Do you have friends that are newer but with whom you are developing a close relationship because you see them frequently and have current activities in common?
I feel very fortunate to have both of these types of friends. New and old, they are all so important to me. What makes them all so special? Their unique personalities and their friendship — let me tell you a little bit about some of them.
I have two friends from different parts of my life who have been around for more than 30 years. The first of those friends is Mary. Mary has been in my life since I was about 25 years old. She lived in the same small town I did and through many nights of card games, long phone conversations, child-rearing and shopping trips, we became the best of friends. She and her family were around at the time my daughter was born, and Mary became her godmother. To my daughter, she became “Mimi” and to Mary, my husband became “GBO”— the “Great Bald One.”
