How many stories begin with those few words? Makes me laugh to think about it, about how cliche it must sound. But it’s true! I did run into a person whom I have always considered a true friend. When I think of her, the thoughts are always good ones. Besides fond memories and fun times, her sincerity and thoughtfulness are what draw me to her. Life has separated us over time, which can be expected, but does not have to be accepted. I have accepted it, but maybe I will decide to be proactive in changing that.
