|We were 16 when this was taken, headed out for a night on our own. We look like we think we're grown, LOL|
Back in 1980, my family lived in another state. We moved from the midwest to the south, and lets just say, I did not fit in with the local girls. It could have been a pretty miserable time, but it was not, thanks to Beverly. We were neighbors who became best friends, and even though it wasn't long until my family moved back to the midwest, Beverly and I are still friends. We haven't actually been in the same room since the summer we were sixteen, but it doesn't matter. She is there for me, as I am for her, and no matter how much time has passed since we last talked, we can pick up right where we left off.
Today, the mailman brought me a beautiful, "just because" card from Beverly. It was a touching surprise, at a time when it was just what I needed. How does she always know? I am lucky, and grateful, to have Beverly in my life.
