We just celebrated Mother's Day here in the United States. It's always been our family custom, whenever possible, to attend church with Mom on that Sunday. My daughter snapped a picture of my 84-year-old mom standing beside another lady that she has known since she was a young girl. The two of them have attended the same church together for over 70 years.
I guess I was focused on their smiling faces and didn't notice until my daughter pointed out to me that they were holding hands. It was so sweet. What a treasure to have such a lasting friendship! They have endured the loss of many family members and friends, but thankfully, still have the comfort of a familiar friend. I couldn't help imagining all the joys and trials they have shared together through the years. Probably enough to write a book about. Hmmm.. stay tuned, I might do just that.
