Late yesterday afternoon I was busily preparing dinner and chatting with the boys about their school day. Then the phone rang. We have caller ID and Donovan looked over and said "I don't know anyone from Virginia. I'm not answering it."
I know a few people in Virginia so picked up the phone. On the other end was a dear friend who has a VA phone number but lives in Florida! I haven't talked to her in about 25 years! The last memory I have of her is we are sitting in our home room visiting at the end of our 8th grade year. We were just waiting for school to get out for the summer.
It's so nice to have friends that last through the years. As we were visiting over the phone we reminisced about our Young Women days. We talked about a particular leader that we had. She still keeps in contact with her so asked her to pass along a hello from me.
I was so happy to get that phone call out of the blue. It's nice to know some friendships can be picked up right where we left off. Even after 25 years.
