1993: Old Friends

The year was 1993. I just started my 2nd year of college. I thought life could not get any better. I enjoyed going to college, meeting new people, attending classes, and my freedom away from my Parents. I lived on Campus in Lee Hall. I started meeting lots of new Girlfriends while living at Lee. I met one in particular who I thought would always be my friend, Jan. Jan and I have been friends for 14 years. 14 years is a very long time! I have not seen Jan in about 5 to 6 years. Life simply gets in the way of what is really important. Jan is in Dallas this week visiting with her husband's family. I went to Aunt Mona's house last night to see Jan and her family! It's wonderful even after all the time that has passed between our last visit Jan and I simply picked up on where we left off. This is truly a sign of a great friendship.
Matthew (Jan's husband) fried fish last night. The food was great, but the company was even better! I enjoyed myself so very much. It was great spending time with Jan and the family........that's why I am going back again tonight! Matthew even told me last night that out of all Jan's friends when he first met Jan, I was his favorite friend! WOW, I am so honored! Thanks Matthew! Matthew and Jan have been married for 7 years & have been together for 12 years. They have 2 beautiful children. Logan who is 3 and Casey who is 7 months. It's amazing how much Logan looks like Matthew and how much Casey looks like Jan. I am totally amazed that Little Jan has children now. I guess this means we officially Adults!

Dear God, Thank you so much for Jan and her family. I am so blessed to have them in my life. God, please let me focus on my old friendships as well as my new ones. Old friends are so very special!
