I recently got together with a an old friend from middle school. Our first get together, while it was fun, was more about the past and all the things that I evidently missed out on while I was planning my wedding! (what????)
The second meeting was more about the present. I got to know her as a Mom, a woman and a friend. I admire her perseverance, her beauty, her knowledge, her humor.
I hope that we can continue to know each other at this point in our lives. While respecting our past friendship and cherishing the fondness of who we were at age 14, I look forward to knowing this remarkable woman TODAY and beyond.
