Old friends....


Old friends are the best friends, aren’t they? Over the past several months I have been very fortunate to re-connect with so many of my old friends from high school and it’s been wonderful. I also recently spent time with my oldest and dearest friend, Robin, who lives near me yet because we both work and have kids, it’s tough to always find time to get together. We had her and her troupe over this past weekend for pizza, playing and drinks (of course) and it was sooooooooooo nice to catch up. The kids all got along fabulously (duh) – and I really enjoyed my quality time with the person who knows me better than anyone (even when we sometimes lose touch). I love love love old friends and I believe old friends are the best friends. Don’t get me wrong I love my new friends too – but nobody can comfort you like an old friend. It’s like an old favorite sweatshirt that you pull out to keep you warm when you feel chilly – it just “feels right” and comfortable and real. Thanks Robin for being my friend :)

Wait!! I thought NEW friends were the best. Maybe you should go with that old brownie/girl scout thing - make new friends, but keep the old...etc. Nah, it was too dorky even when i was 7. :)
p.s. Mary is a very clever pseudonym. (fairly sure that isn't spelled correctly)
