Well, today was it. The unavoidable comment came out. "We won't be able to see each other now til summer and that is just too long!" I fought so hard to hold back the tears. My daughters best friend is going off to elementary school while I am schooling mine at home. To make matters worse her friend is now going to another church. I never thought I was one who struggled with change but this time it was so much different. (I can barely type this through the tears.) So immediately I said, "No, we can do things in the evenings and on weekends or after school." Knowing full well that this presents its own challenges but perhaps it will be something worked out from time to time. A good friend is hard to find. One who is nice to you no matter what. One who loves you through your faults. My daughter is blessed to have her. But I know God will send others like her.
Consider your friends. Thank God for them because they are precious. And at times He takes some away but the good news is He is constant. He is dependable and He is always there.
