Not So Different From 1977

My daughter started school today. 8th grade. She came home very excited, and talking non stop about her day. I'm glad it seemed like the day was good, and that she is happy about her final year of middle school. So many fun things and events will happen during this year, to prepare her for high school.

She was talking about some new friends she'd met today. I started thinking how this is the same grade I was in when I met Scarlet and Kim; friendships that have lasted more than 30 years. In some ways it seems like a hundred years ago. In some ways, like yesterday. It's nice to have friends who have stuck by you through good and bad, happy and sad....even read your blog! I always tell my daughter how important it is for her to surround herself with strong women. I hope that she'll have at least one friendship from this school year that will endure as ours have.
