Still Crazy After All These Years

The back door opened and a woman walked out smiling. I quickly tried to see the girl I had once known. It had been forty-three years since last I saw her. It was a time of mortar boards and tassels.

Again, Facebook brought friends back together. It all started with a note saying, "Hi. I hope you remember me." From that point on, the two girls, now women, went on to create a new friendship.

My friend came to see me while I was visiting my sister. She walked through that door and back into my life once more. The conversation began and ended several hours later. The years dissolved. Old times were remembered, then the forty-three years away from our youth were shared.

The time of saying 'good-bye' wasn't easy, but promises were made to keep in touch and see each other as often as we could.

A door opens and old friendships grow new. A door opens......


  1. Awwwwwwww Pam - Thank you!! You were and always will be my friend. I love you dearly and I am so glad we found each other after all these years.

    1. Friends forever are just that, Judy. Friends forever found again.
