When I was little, I was a Girl Scout Brownie for a short time. I assumed we would get to eat brownies at every meeting. Never happened. But I did learn a million and one songs that I still recall.
The above verse is from one of those songs imprinted in my brain. And as we left my parents’ home the other day, this is the song I kept hearing. We were headed to meet dear friends that we had not seen for about thirteen years.
We arrived at Pop’s within minutes of each other, waving each other down in the parking lot. Isn’t it funny how some things stay the same? Like the cheery smiles and warm embraces. Easy conversation. Catching up on life. Trying to figure out where time went and how on earth it took so long to meet again. Understanding that life takes us in different directions. Promising to never let that much time lapse again between visits. Leaving feeling better for having know them.
Gold…..definately gold. ♥
