"Friendship is love without his wings"
~ Lord Byron

Some people came into my life for a short time. Hopefully, I was wise enough to learn something from each one. More importantly, I hope I brought something into their lives to learn or cherish.

Some people have made the effort to remain in contact with me as I traveled to various destinations and explored my options in my adventurous life. Two friends have been accepting of me and caring about me since 8th grade!

It's been a long time since 8th grade; mistakes made, lessons learned. I am blessed.

Friendship is reciprocal and you're probably blessed because you're such a good friend. I have had the privilege to experience just a small dose of your friendship skills and well I think I'm right!!

Hello, Tisha, thanks for the warm words. I am enjoying your blog as I check it out each day.

Wow...since 8th grade. If you're the type to move around a lot, that is tough to do so you are doing something right!
I've moved from country to country, from state to state...I'm not really in touch with people I went to high school with (mind you that was 30+ years ago.) But I do have some close friends I've known, and kept in touch with, for well over 20 years.

Hi Carina, we have that in common: I have lived many many places, even as a child when I was still with my parents we moved at least 6 times by the time I was 10, and more after that. And then I was in different foster homes and moved around, different schools etc. So I am used to starting over and learning a new town or state and figuring out where the things are that I am interested in finding: the local library, a dentist etc. Sounds like you have traveled the same road so to speak. Sympatico travelers. In my case, it is because of the good hearts of my friends that we are still in touch with each other, not because of anything I have done. I am so glad you know that kind of friendship too.

Yep, sounds like we've travelled some similar paths and I know exactly what you mean about learning to assimilate quickly.
And, don't cut yourself short. ;)
