Sitting here this evening listening to what some people consider the oldies and reminiscing about my younger days. No I am not talking about the 50’s, 60’s or even 70’s. I grew up in the late 70’s early 80’s.
Funny how certain songs can bring back a flood of memories, some good, some bad. Some you wish you could forget all together and yet some that make you wonder how you got away with that and what happened to those people you were with doing just that.
I am lucky enough to still have a 2 friends from 7th and 8th grade in my life. They know all about my high and lows and some major pitfalls. LOL They are NOT allowed to NOT be my friends. They know to much. LOL I say that with love in my heart and a margarita held high in tribute.
I also have one very important cousin that doesn’t know all my highs and lows, but without her I never would have made my books public. So I am blessed in many ways and cursed in others, as we all are.
So here’s to Real Friends. (Lifting up my glass)
I guess that is why I wrote the series about Allison, Lillian, Gabrielle and lastly Catherine. Longtime friends since college, through all the highs and lows in each other lives. They stand by and behind each other regardless of their very different lifestyles. As it should be.
