Three Friends

I received this copy of a very recent photo of my sister-in-law, Merle, with her friends (from way back when….) Nanette and Mickey.  We were all together on a trip that started in Prague, worked through Germany, and ended in Vienna, Austria.

I viewed the photo from last week’s trip and I thought, “Here are three friends who have shared a childhood, through scraped knees and pubescent woes, through oral recitations, writing assignments, term papers and reports, and have kept in touch over the years after career climbs, weddings, births, graduations, in three continents, and now, enjoying the empty nest together.  They are a testament to enduring friendships. Sans time. Sans place.  Sans life’s curve balls.”
