Keep The Old

Remember that song from Girl Scouts
"Make new friends, but keep the old
One is silver and the other's gold'

Anyways on to my post...

Yesterday I got to hang out with some old girl friends at a wedding shower.
Friends I haven't seen in years.
Friends that I grew up with.

These girls and I went to junior high, high school and part of college together.
We were a huge part of each other's lives.
Well...things happened and I lost contact with them. Most of them at least.
So seeing them yesterday was great.

Honestly, I was a little nervous because I didn't know if it would be awkward... but it wasn't it was great!
It felt like we were the best of friends again. It felt wonderful to be around each other.
It made me miss them... a lot!
Two of them in particular.

See there were three of us.
Me, Becky, Dawn

We were kind inseparable. We did everything together.
I would say from 1999 to 2005 we were like sisters.
Always together.

Life happened. We lost contact for the most part. Our friendships dwindled to pretty much nothing.
Dawn is close with my she there has been some kind of contact with her since. But nothing like it used to be. Seeing them both yesterday made me miss the fun we had together.
We have laughed, cried, drank, and God knows what else. We grew up with each other.
So many memories with these two girls.

I know we are different girls now.
We have changed.
We have matured.
We have gone through experiences.
We have moved on with our lives.

Now God has brought us all back together.
Yes, I know it is for Dawn's wedding...but maybe it can be more than just a day or two.
Maybe we can be friends again.
Like real friends...that hang out :)
