After tucking the kids in bed tonight I was looking through some pictures from this summer. Of all this summer's happy memories, and there were many, I think this one tops the list. Once upon a time two girls met in seventh grade and became fast friends in eighth. They were inseparable--sharing sleepovers, clothes, haircuts, laughs, hopes, dreams, and adventures of every kind. It was a horrible day when one moved over 200 miles away three years later. They kept in touch, but grew apart. And both were very sad.
