Challenged Friends

Scrap and Stamp Saturday Friend Challenge you can find more about it {here}

52 Weeks 52 sketches sketch challenge 31.

When I first saw the challenge on scrap and stamp Saturday I had a plan right away to use one of my fave photos of my good friend and I at her HS graduation party way back in 1988. (Yep, we are old fogies.) Well she says I am just because my birthday comes in June and hers in July. Next year we both hit the big 40, ACK!

We share many great memories and some we would rather forget for a friendship that has lasted since the second grade. She moved to Ohio a few years back and just recently came home to say goodbye to her Daddy, he passed away this past spring. Now we have one more thing in common the death of a parent, that falls in the class of some not so good memories.

One year back in middle school possibly even HS we did not talk to each other, some major fight that can't be recalled after so many years. Makes you wonder what could have been so bad that we did not speak for over a year...I will have to ask her if she remembers. My favorite bible passage about friends falls in Proverbs 17:17 When things go wrong as often do in any type of friendship God tells us to..."...love at all times".
