It’s funny how some dates just stick in the mind. Today, for instance, I remember as Kim Davis’ birthday. Kim was my first real friend. We met in first grade and were pretty much inseparable all through grade school. We both loved Nancy Drew books! Every year Kim had a slumber party and each one was better than the last. Even when my parents divorced and I moved to a new neighborhood, I still went to Kim’s party. One year, I think it was in 6th grade, I met my friend Carolyn there. Kim and I drifted apart sometime in high school, but Carolyn and I are still very close friends today. We don’t get to see each other very often, because she lives in Boston with her family and I’m in Los Angeles with mine. But each time we talk it’s as if no time has gone by at all.
Through our friendships, we can learn about ourselves. I am so grateful to Kim, and to Carolyn, and all the friends who have taught me so much over the years. You are a blessing! Thank you!
