Forever Friends

"Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another, "What! You too?
I thought I was the only one!"
~ C.S. Lewis ~

Friendship is a precious thing. See those girls in that picture up there? They've been my friends since junior high. In high school we were inseperable. And last weekend was spent seeing one of them married off.

These are the girls that I share all of my crazy high school memories with. These are the girls who knew about all of my crushes on guys, and of course I knew about theirs. These are the girls who cried with me when I was upset. These are the girls that I shared snacks with when our school went to camp. These are the girls I saved a bus seat for on our senior trip. These are the girls that I try my hardest to get together with at least a couple of times a year (two of them have moved away.)

Over the years these are the girls I've grown to love as some of my dearest friends. And it's hard to imagine that two of these friendships started because we all liked the swings at recess! And the other one started because one of my friends played volleyball and became friends with this other girl.

Swingsets and volleyball, not very deep, life-changing things, but these two things gave me friends that I would never trade! I think C.S. Lewis had it right on this one. It's our similarities that bring us together, but what grows from that becomes a tie that binds us even through our differences!

I still have friends from high school also! Unfortuantely, we all scattered and rarely (if ever) get to see one another. However, I still hold them near and dear to my heart!

I'm convinced that "girlfriendism" is a God given gift. Men are missing out on this one, big time. :)

Great post! It's wonderful to have such deep friendship that started with something so simple.
