I’m so happy for Aislynn. She has made a friend who lives just a few houses down from ours. They are starting to play together almost everyday. They are getting pretty tight…and this photo proves that. Just look at that tight hold they have on each other, LOL.
She has a friend on our street! Yay! This means the world to me, because when I grew up I had a best friend who lived right across the street from me and we were like sisters. Everyday we would play together. We rode bikes, roller skated, or sometimes we just sat on the curb and talked, talked, talked the day away. We had sleepovers on the weekends, we walked to school together and shared our secrets. I have great memories with Trisa…and to this day we are friends. Forever Friends.
This is what I want for my children. Forever Friends. The kind of friends who knew you when….and today still love you and are an important part of your life.
I have Trisa, Patsy, Noelle, Sandra, Mona and Brian. Those were my “best friends” growing up. I met Patsy and Mona in the first grade and Noelle in the third grade. They have known me the longest. I met Trisa and Brian when I was in the 5th grade. At that time our family moved to a new neighborhood and those two were on my street. Then I met Sandra in the 5th grade when I started at my new school. These six people are my oldest and longest friendships, and I cherish each one of them. There’s nothing quite like an “old” friend from childhood. My mother is still best friends with her BFF from the 4th grade! Now, that’s a long friendship! What a blessing.
Anyway, so Aislynn has this friendship and it’s growing into something beautiful. I love watching these two play together. I love hearing their pretend play and listening to the conversations that they have. The other day I took just the two of them to get an ice cream, and then we went shopping for clothes. They loved trying on all the different outfits. I bought them matching dresses. Don’t they look sweet?
After shopping, we walked to the park and they played for a little bit. Then we walked back home. I walked behind them so that I could witness the sweetness of being 5 years old and having a special friend to hold hands with and talk to while you walk….
I hope these two girls have many years of friendship ahead of them! They are off to a good start, don’t you think?
