Today's treasure was a conversation with my best friend from seventh grade! When I moved out of the state in 1963 after my dad died, we didn't have e-mail or Facebook, and phone calls weren't affordable. We wrote for awhile, caught up at one point, but then lost touch again until a couple of weeks ago when I found her on Facebook. It felt as though no time had passed and the conversation flowed easily, filled with memories, laughter and catching up! What a gift to find her again after all these years!
I've had this photograph of Julia with me for decades! I knew when the time was right I'd find her again.
We have both taken different paths, yet our perspectives on life are very similar. It is refreshing and reassuring to know that the basis of our friendship is still strong and we are hoping to be able to see each other before the year ends. I'm feeling very blessed this year - another blessing to add to my gratitude list!
