I've been thinking a lot about friendship lately. Friendship that lasts a lifetime is rare and to be cherished. Becky (my oldest daughter) met Caitlin in the church nursery. They "met" in the baby room. They've been on my mind lately because Caitlin is getting married soon and I've been helping Becky (her maid of honor) plan a wedding shower for her.
While they have had some similarities in their lives (we attend the same church), they have also had differences (Caitlin was homeschooled and Becky went to public school). Their personalities are very different but complimentary.
Currently they are both seniors in college. Caitlin in California and Becky in Arizona. Of course, Becky's first "road trip" was to California to visit Caitlin.
So far, this "forever" friendship has been going for 21+ years. I expect it will last.
