I don't know about you, but my friends have changed through the years. In school I had a set of friends who lived close to me from the first grade to the 10th grade till we moved to Georgia. Then I started babysitting in Georgia and my friends were the kids I took care of and their parents and the folks at church. I finally met my husband in 1995 and he became my best friend. My husband died in 1999. It was very hard on me.
Then I moved to New Jersey as I had to move in with my Mom because I was falling when I would pass out. I made new friends here. Friends at church who I dearly love. I was introduced to making cards and scrap-booking by some of them. They have moved away now.
Then I started blogging and joined design teams. That opened up a who new set of friends. Many who will be friends for a long long time and some who will be forever friends.
I feel like that I have moved along from chair to chair like in the children's game of musical chairs. Each new friendship changing my life and some enriching my life. I have found some precious treasures along the way. I am very thankful to all my friends especially those who have helped me grow along the way. To learn and become better than I was before I met them.
