Long Lost Friend
So in the seventies I met this amazing woman who would become the wife of Jim’s best friend and then she became my best friend! The 4 of us became family, in the best way possible, as we have traveled together, shared meals, raised kids, cried and laughed in a million ways. And I hope you know that you have impacted my life in more ways than you can imagine.
First let me start by saying Happy Birthday Janis Ruth Terry!
I would like to add that sometimes life gets ahead of me and our days apart turn to months apart and I am left wondering how time flies so fast. I miss you and I think about you all the time. One of the good things about social media is the way that it keeps people connected. One of the bad things about social media is the way people who should be connected in real time are only in touch virtually. I know we haven’t talked in awhile but I know that if we did, it would be like no time had passed and we were picking up in mid-sentence from our last conversation.
I know you are doing amazing things and loving your kids and grandkids well because I see glimpses on social media and it makes me so happy. I will always cherish our years of adventures, endless laughter, and the intentionality with which we have cared for each other. I look forward to making more memories in the future. But for today, in the midst of busy lives and work, our friendship remains an unbroken circle, a tale as old as time, and one of the best things in my life. And I cannot wait until we get our rhythm back and move “in sync” again! Until then, I hold you in my heart. I love you! With joy and hope, Miriam
