This is how I remember my childhood. We played together and when someone needed help we were there encouraging, lifting and giving it our all for each other. We protected each other.
Recently, we had a reunion with our closest childhood parents and their kids. We have so many wonderful memories of our years growing up together. Taking vacations together, playing kick the can, having carnivals and just hanging out. We were always there for each other and I have to say 50+ years later we are still there for each other.
Even though we don’t see each other very often we pick up where we left off because we strengthen each other by being who we are.
