Make New Friends, But Keep the Old

J:  Today is Sweet T's birthday, and she has had a wonderful day!  So many friends made the time to drop by or call, and each time someone wished her happy birthday, the sweetest smile appeared on her face.  

As we sat on the back patio today, surrounded by a group of friends who have known her since she was a child, I looked around and realized that they have shared so much.  Weddings, babies, graduations, more weddings, grandchildren, funerals - the list goes on and on.  And they have all supported each other, in sickness and in health, in good times and in bad, for richer for poorer.  Friendship with old friends is truly something sacred. 

Thanks, ladies for being the best of friends.  Happy Birthday Sweet T.  I love you!
