Have you ever had a friend that you knew would ALWAYS be a friend? The type that you just couldn't imagine NOT having in your life when you were 85? The type of friend that you knew you would take holidays with....kids at the beach, skiing in the winter....or just you and your significant others when the kids were off at school? You knew that you would learn to play bridge together, and learn to knit together, and grow old together. As friends.
It's so sad when something happens. Something that doesn't even feel very big, but somehow it becomes big. Something that makes it all different. Something that puts this huge barrier between the two of you and you realize it one day, and there really isn't any going back.
I was perusing Faith Carter's blog Letters from a College Student just now, and I came across this quote:
“I’d always thought we’d be friends forever. Well, forever just got a lot shorter than I expected.”
My heart just stopped. It says it all. Part of me wants to send it to her. Part of me doesn't.
