First Day of Spring, Forty Years Later

I have a special friend
who has been more like a sister (Fremily),
for over 57 years.
Click here and here to read our story.

Forty years ago today, we made a date
 to have lunch and go shopping.

We knew way back then,
 that our friendship would last.

Happy First  Day of Spring!

We talked on the phone today and 
laughed, laughed and laughed.

Just like we have for over 57 years.


  1. How wonderful that you kept a 40 year commitment! I always say old friends are the best. I am very impressed that you still have the note!

  2. That made my heart melt!!
    How special that the two of you remain good friends...wherever did you keep that note? And how did you remember?

    1. Because we are so close, we have talked about this forever, well at least 39 years.

      I lost mine but DiDi kepted hers! Which is amazing because I moved, maybe four times in 40 years. DiDi moved, well so many times I can't count.

  3. Something wrong with my I pad did not let me continue comment ..
    I think it's so sweet of a wonderful commitment to each other .i have a friend just like that! I wouldn't know what to do without her..

  4. No way! guys are so cute!

  5. Amazing! How blessed you are to have each other.

  6. How priceless is that? Oh my! what a treasure. Friendship!!!

  7. How wonderful! Good friends are such a life long treasure! :)

  8. I have always measured my true friendships by this.. that no matter how long it has been since we were together, we alway pick up right where we left off.Friends are one of God's great gifts to us, His children.
    Thanks for sharing.

  9. What you have is a TREASURE. What is more, you have the triple portion because you not only have the treasured friend, but you have the memory and the memento to go with it. You are so blessed.

  10. I love this about you, Christine. Fits you perfectly. AND, I'm so glad you were able to go celebrate Kimmie's birthday AND stop the pole from closing in on your tree!!! Lots has been going on here. All good. blessings ~ tanna
