Isn't it amazing how our memories from childhood seem to involve endless summers, endless waiting for birthdays and Santa Claus, and endless time playing with our friends? (I certainly miss the days when the world was safe enough for a little girl to say goodbye to her parents on a Saturday morning and not show up again until dinner time ... and her parents NEVER worried 'cause they knew she was "at the neighbor's house" ...) As I have grown up and things seems to have gotten busybusybusy I often reminisce about those days and long for the time when the most difficult decision I had to make was whether to play Barbies or go outside and ride my bike ...
The challenge over on SCS yesterday was to make a card that evoked a childhood memory (TLC265). I started looking through the images on my "A Child's Year" Cricut cartridge and immediately thought of my friend, Michelle. Michelle and I met in the first grade. We were pretty much inseparable. Her family moved across town when we started high school in the 9th grade, but we seemed to manage and were still able to spend a lot of time together. THEN, my parents decided to move OUT OF STATE when we started our 10th grade year! I thought I was gonna die! The one thing I have learned, however, is that true friendship NEVER dies ... even when distances and life circumstances take you in opposite directions. Whenever Michelle and I speak on the phone it is as if NO time has passed and those bonds of friendship are ALWAYS there. True friendships are a real blessing ...
Have a terrific day!
