Friends Forever

Left to right, Linda, Ticky, Jennifer, Patty and Karla

We have been friends forever. 
Patty and I grew up across the street from each other.  Ticky, Jennifer and I started first grade together.  Karla, Ticky and I attended to church together as children.  We all graduated from the same small high school.  Patty was a year ahead of the rest of us because her birthday fell 4 days before the deadline to be in our class.  
This year we are all celebrating our 59th birthdays.  We have not always lived in the same little Kentucky town of Berea where were were born and raised.  Some of us moved away as young adults.   
But, we all chose to come back to this place we love.  
Last week my daughter, Melissa, was visiting so she went to dinner with us and took this photo.   
I can only imagine the stories she is telling her girlfriends about spending an evening with a bunch of old ladies who still think they are young girls.

What a blessing that you have stayed in touch all these years. Fabulous photo!!

I'm planning on taking a cruise in January. Besides my daughter and a friend of hers, also accompanying me will be my oldest friend in the world (strike that...make it my longest friend in the world). We've been friends since 6th grade...and there has never been a time we have lost touch. However, unlike you, I don't have contact with people from before middle school. Wish I did, though!!

Blessings to you,

"... bunch of old ladies who still think they are young girls." I can hardly think of a better way to spend the evening! (And I can't say that you're old!)

Stephanie, We aren't old. But, our mother's were when they were our ages! *LOL*

You didn't have to tell our age. Most people would tell you that we sure don't "act our age". I hope Melissa had fun and isn't too hard on us. I know I had a great time.
