A pretty friendship tag from Joyce reminded me of just how important friendships are. John always says when I make a friend I make them for life. Why wouldn't they be?. I guess friendship means different things to different people. Friends don't have to be my age. I have some much younger and some much older. Age is just a word or a number. I have one friend who calls me her "sis" since she doesn't have any sisters. Actually her mother was my friend even though she was ten years older then me. Since she died her daughter has become my friend and my "sis". I had one friend who was 20 years older then me. She died recently but we did a lot of fun things together. Dancing, water exercise, walking, etc. I have remained friends with people from high school, people from my hometown, people that rented from me. I think to have friends you have to make an effort to pick up the phone or drop a note. Now days there are online friends who mean as much as someone you have known all your life. You care when they are down or ill. You worry when they don't post for a while. Thank you Joyce for posting your pretty friendship tag. You made me think of all my past and present friendships and the new ones here online.
