Throwback Thursday

Throwback Thursday….I love that idea!  It nudges us to look back on our lives to memories that make us smile.  One of my favorite cards is ‘Friends Forever’ …why?  Easy. First of all, my precious mama took the picture over 50 years ago…you could always count on her to have her camera ready for any occasion, ignoring our groans when she made us stand still for a moment.  Secondly, this is one of my favorite cards because one of my favorite people is standing right next to me on the front. Beth and I have been friends for over 50 years, and I’d like to think that photo portrays us as adventuresome characters, like maybe from a Mark Twain novel.  Lastly, because my friends are one of my greatest treasures, this card is a tribute to those friendships that endure time and space.   One version of this card says ‘thinking of you’, and the other, ‘happy birthday dear friend.’. Today I am sending out the first version to a dear friend suffering from cancer.  Tomorrow, I may send one to an old friend from second grade I had a long phone conversation with on Sunday.  Friends…treasures of the highest order…hold on to them tight…
