Hi,.. what a nice question.. I think this brings a smile on faces on many people.. since we are talking about our best friend no..
Well I have met my dearest friend when I was 18 years during my trip to India. Of course there's a lot of distance between us (India=> Belgium) and we had a time that we had no contact. (no special reason) But she has remained always in my heart and mind. And God brought is back together since a few years.. and it felt great..
I wish for everybody to have a best friend in their life because that's how life gets bearable.
Since I left the country I was born in, it was difficult to keep in touch with my school mates. However one of my customers became a very good friend. We have been friends for about 35 years and now she is visiting often. She is responsible for getting into me into embroidery.
What a fun question! I reconnected with a high school friend after 40 years apart. And then Cute gave me my special sister/friend, Suzanne. We don't share genes but, but she is the one I never hesitate to run to when I want to share something good, or I need someone to share the bad news with. I hope many more share their stories.
I've known mine since 2nd grade Brownie Scouts.
My other "lifetime" friend, who died at 52, was my friend since we were nubby-kneed kindergarteners at Mrs. MacIntoshes' Laddies and Lassies (private) Kindergarten. Our two teachers were Mrs. Mac and Mrs. Love (really).
