    From the time I was born, I was destined to be constantly surrounded by people who were much, much older than me, as I am the youngest in my family. I'd say that everyone was friends in my house. My older siblings' friends were friends of mine, too, right? I guess I didn't...

    Lost Friends

    like sea sand running through your hands a word or thought or gesture and it is all over and you wonder WHY? what did I say or do that I have lost you? And you never know. Just have to go on and reach out as you can and be thankful for new friends.
