I know that this is a day before your birthday but I wanted to make sure that you got this because I knew you would not be home and didn’t know if or when you’d be on line. I just wanted to catch you in time so that you would truly know that you were loved and remembered!
May this be the year of Answered Prayer!
I love you~
How many years has it really been
since you and I became best friends?
We met back in the days of dippity doo
Has it really been fifty two?
You were there for my first day of school
we thought our velvet shoes were too cool!
Days of summer, Bosco and bactine
you were a part of everything!
playing ball at dusk till the lights turned on
reminds me of a a favorite song
We both loved the little kid nextdoor
You won out! He loved you more!
I found a picture with all our grins
Sorry I couldn’t cut out the twins!
They were both right in the middle
but then I changed it up a little!
Ahh I remember all the times we shared
And when I moved how much we cared
We did not want to ever lose touch
even then, our friendship meant so much~
Our moms were friends who loved each other
and so we kept in touch through our mothers.
Until you wrote me a letter and I wrote back
then… we kept in touch with notes and sealing wax!
Sometimes we visited on occassion
When my dad gave us a Terri vacation!
As years went by I always knew
That where ever I went I could count on you
Whatever happened you were my friend
You have been my circle without an end.
We’ve been there through each other’s broken hearts
and supported all of each other’s starts!
Once we played with dolls and then had ones of our own
And had even more fun than we had ever known!
The years have been good. You have made them better
through our love and our bond and a million letters!
we have weathered some storms and celebrated others
And we have even become grandmas and mothers!
And the “Auntie” to my baby that you have been~
Well, I just love how “she” loves my very Best friend!
So many memories no one but us have shared
I’m just so glad that you’ve always been there!
Now as we celebrate YOUR DAY I wished I lived near
Cuzzz I’m celebrating you in my heart
At my party right here!
