25 years of friendship.

Where does the time go, I can't believe that my friends and I have known each other for 25 years.
I went out last night to celebrate that with them. I met Wendy, Lyn and Jacqui when our first borns were very young. We would go to each others houses for coffee and a chat and a chance for the children to play. We all got pregnant with our second children within months of each other and supported each other through that. They were wonderful when I had Richard and his TOF issues.
We all the children potty training at the same time so when we did meet at each others houses, potties were at the ready and a very loud cheer from all of us when something had been produced, no matter how small or smelly : )
The children grew up together until the older ones were at school and that is when we all started to drift away a little as there were house moves and school moves.
Although we were not living as close to each other as we were, we still managed to get together.
We have been through such a lot together, they are always there for me which is why 2 of them are the executors of my will, very trustworthy people who I consider more family than friends.
Now our children are all grown up, our eldest ones will be 26 and 27 this year and the younger ones 23.
Wendy and Lyn had girls, I had Siobhan and Jacqui had boys, so with Richard as well, the girls outnumbered the boys.
Thank you so much my friends for being there for me when I need you, thank you for all the support you have given me over the past 25 years, thank you so much for being such wonderful friends.
We had a lovely night, with me doing most of the talking (Of course)
I hope we can try to have another meet up very soon.
