Have any of you been fortunate enough to have a life long girlfriend?
I know......I haven't. Oh I have friends that have been in my life for many, many years...but I don't have one left that is from my pre- school or grammar school years.
Occasionally one will come to mind such as Stephanie....my very best friend....in my middle school years. I spent hours at her house playing tether-ball....gads...I wonder if anyone even knows what tether-ball is in today's world?
Another one....Jenny....in my early school years in a very small town in Kansas. Alas, my family ended up moving far away from its roots so....no more Jenny.
And there was Nancy....she was PERFECT....I mean perfect in the nicest way. Her clothes were always ironed, her skin and hair were beautiful, she was kind and her mom was A STAY AT HOME MOM. They had dessert EVERY NIGHT after dinner....I mean every night!!! A kid's dream. Each of these girls touched my life in a special way...since my home was generally filled with chaos. Their homes were safe places to hang out...and I knew I was always welcome.
I really don't know what happened to each one of them...but I'll always be grateful for the part they played in my growing up.
