01 March, 2010
Hard to believe another month has started in the year. It gets me a little nostalgic this morning… especially after the great night out I had with my girls Saturday night.
Guess I wasn’t aware just how much each and every one of us needed that night, and the laughter that always accompanies it. My bestfriend ended up coming after all, which made me very happy. We were still missing one, though – there are seven of us… but we still had our usual blast even considering we were missing our Dawn.
The 1985 and 1986 graduating year. Seven ladies all growing up together on the same side of town during the 70’s and 80’s – running together, playing together, going to school together, eating the same Zack’s hamburgers (which is still open to this day), celebrating our accomplishments, and sharing our laughter and heartbreaks.
Now it’s 2010. That’s 24-25 years past our graduating classes – which seems like a lifetime ago. Now we share our children’s laughter and heartbreaks, and celebrate their accomplishments. With life, comes change. All of us have changed – yet in a way, have remained exactly the same.
Each of these ladies are so special and dear to me. The qualities and characteristics of the women we’ve grown into has now formed an even stronger bond between us. Each of us is a link, making up a chain.
The relationship we have continually reminds me of the movie “Now and Then”, released in 1995. In fact, it reminds me of it a lot. Check out the trailer.
We’re already planning our next outing – which I’m really looking forward to. We’re going to a Vineyard! Hoping to do that sometime late this month or early April. And I can’t wait. 🙂
