Blogathon 2012 – May 18. Old friends are like cherished old jewelry

This week was shaping up to be tiring but yesterday, I met with three friends from St. Joseph’s Convent, St. Joseph. We had a wonderful time together. It was……. SWEET!

New friends are like new jewelry, and who doesn’t love new jewelry? It’s all bright and shiny and accessorizing our lives with a fresh kind of excitement and energy.

Old friends, well, old friends are like the cherished old jewelry from our childhood or teenage years. We’re slightly dull due to age but our eyes still sparkle at seeing each other and with gratitude for the friendships that survived the passage of time and travel miles. We glow with the memories we carry and cherish – the memories we are always happy to revive and salivate over in our conversations. Moreover, our lives are enriched by the new stories each of us brings to share.

I can hardly wait for the next time I get to spend time with my cherished old jewelry – my cherished old friends.
