Friend ship #AtoZchallenge

I’m very lucky.  I have such wonderful friends.  I always have.  Even if we’ve fallen out, I’ve always felt close to them, knowing that we’ll get over it in time.

There’s someone I think of often.  We didn’t speak for 6 months, I have no idea what it was over.  That was in 1987.  Looking back, it’s easy to say we should never have tried sharing a home together but we did despite family concerns.  Of course, they could see better than we could.  I moved out, then moved towns and was far away from her when the accident happened.

Her parents still invite me to visit which is lovely though I haven’t seen them for years.  Maybe this year.  The pain’s still there I guess, hidden in the 25 years since Lynne’s death.  I loved her, as we became women, we were there for each other.  I still carry Lynne’s friendship and the memory of how close we were with me in my heart and always will.

If there’s a friend you love and are going through a rough patch with, please find a way, any way, to resolve your differences and keep loving.  More than anything, keep the love in the friendship alive.
