Saying Goodbye..

Piper and Chris the Guy she finally settled down with

Piper from the trip

Again the trip

Piper from high school. Right after we first met.

Do you know what one of the saddest things a girl can do is? Saying goodbye to her best friend. Piper and I have been best friends and almost sisters from the day I first met her in the hall at school. She was reading a romance novel and one of our mutual friends decided we should meet. Normally with new people I am shy and a little reserved but with her we started talking immediately, we have been best friends ever since. We have survived boys, graduation, college roommates everything. Today I said good by to her.

She married a great guy and they are moving. I know that we agreed to call and write, and be the godmother's of each others kids, but when people move away it is my experience that well you loose touch no matter how hard you try to stay together. I am sure we will talk on birthdays and holidays and kids christenings. But saying goodbye is hard. I don't make a lot of friends and the ones I do I love, so when they leave I get rather emotional.

Tell Piper to start her own blog. It's funny, I lost a friend a few years back and all of Piper's black bracelets reminded me of her because she wore them too. Sigh.

I know just how you feel. I lost A LOT of my very close friends due to college, marriage etc. I hope you & Piper are able to stay in touch.
(Just mingling!)

Mingle on!

I've lost touch with a lot of people throughout the years, and found some again as well. With some, well, you understand why you didn't stay in touch. And with others, it's like picking up a conversation that never stopped, even with years and years in between.
