Last night mom worked on a wedding gift for a dear friend of hers. Her and my mom has been friends for over 30 years, and in those years has seen happy and sad.
Mom first met her friend when she brought her little girl to moms class. Well, this little girl was a bit of a firecracker, and the poor mom was so embarrassed. Mom just laughed MOST of it off, and told her that is what four year olds do, like----------paint the aide's beautiful white hair a bright shade of ORANGE. Mom and her friends laugh about those days.
Then Desert Storm came along, and they shared lonely days together, and kept each other company through ups and downs. Things like that just make a bond stronger.
The years came and went and changes in Moms life happened but her friendship just become stronger, and even though they didn't get to see each other as much, at least twice a year they got together for a fun supper and hours of talking.
Mom's friend lost her husband a few years ago, way to soon, and way to fast, ..........sometimes there is just no words.
But time has went on, and NOW my mom's friend is getting married on Saturday. My mom is so happy for her and her new life. Of course bits and pieces of her old life, will always be carried around in her heart...like my mom.
What else would mom give as a gift...........................
