Rag Bag for a Special Person

Beth and Holly
Constant use will not wear ragged the fabric of friendship. ~Dorothy Parker

 

One of lifes greatest blessing are the friends we make along the way. I have been friends with Holly since daycare. That is a really long time! Growing up we were inseparable. Always either together or chatting all night on the phone. We have made memories together that I will never forget. When I sit and think back to all our memories growing up it is all a blur of uncontrollable giggling.

Holly got married the month after we graduated high school. Of course I was her maid of honor. When the preacher started the ceremony I started crying uncontrollably. He stopped and got me tissue. That was so embarrassing but I was so sad that I was losing my best friend. I knew it wasn’t going to be the same after she got married. Her husband would have wondered about her if she was with me more than she was with him.

Time went by, she moved out of town….we grew a little more apart. She is back in the same town as me now and ironically we live 2 houses from each other. She is very busy between work and school and we don’t get to see each other as much as we would like. But when we do get together it feels like we never missed a beat. I have a feeling it will always be that way. Just pick up where we left off and move forward.

I just want to wish her a Happy Birthday and I hope we have many more years of giggly memories!
