Today is November 14th. That means that it is the day that I get to write one of my friends from junior high so I can wish her a happy birthday. We only went to school together for a year, but even after she moved, we would have sleepovers a few times a year. We went to science fairs and music recitals together. We’ve stayed in touch and exchanged birthday greetings for half our lives now.
I’m grateful for that. Grateful for the friends that I have that I haven’t seen in years. Grateful to know they’re still my friends. I’m grateful for the friends I have now that will be friends for years to come. I’m grateful for the knowledge that there will be more people in my life that I haven’t met yet who will be my friends forever, too.
