Friends - what an important role they play in our lives.
This is one of my favorite quotes about friends.
It's been said that everlasting friends go long periods of time without speaking and never question their friendship. These friends pick up phones like they just spoke yesterday, regardless of how long it has been or how far away they live, and they don't hold grudges. They understand that life is busy and you will always love them.
My Friend Susan is one of those "everlasting" friends.
We first met as young marrieds - working just a few buildings from each other.
Then we had children and drifted apart.
Later on I moved into a home just down the street from her sister and our friendship was rekindled.
By now we both had small children similar in age. We often got together and chatted while the kids played.
The children grew up and we suddenly had more time for ourselves.
We both grew to love antiques and old homes and we attend many an auction and went on many a road trip antiquing.
We both bought old homes. She found hers first.
I then found mine, the home we currently live in - ironically right across the street from Susan.
We spent many a day or evening on one of our front porches - just chatting.
Then Susan experienced a life changing event which sent her to Des Moines - 2 1/2 hours from me.
I don't see Susan as often as I did when she lived across the street. But yet when I see her or we chat on the phone - it is like no time has passed.
I have not talked to Susan since she stopped by at Christmas when she was home for her family Christmas.
I think I will give her a call tonight - we will pick up right were we left off at Christmas as if it were yesterday that we last chatted. Truly an everlasting friend.
