|Judy, Talya, Norma, Becky, Anita|
A gaggle of giggling girls, that’s what we were.
That’s what we will always be.
Best friends our entire lives, beginning in the mid-1960s.
This year we turn 50.
Nearly 50 years of memories.
These are the girls who know me best.
My strengths, my weaknesses, my fears, my dreams.
They know my natural hair color.
Mud pies, barbie dolls, Red Rover, matchbox cars,
birthday parties, play dates, giggling,
Sleep overs, scary movies, spin-the-bottle,
basketball practice, first loves, home ec, Yellow Jackets,
lake trips, Six Flags, cheerleading, trading boyfriends,
church service, first/last cigarettes, giggling.
Double dates, driver’s tests, football games,
pizza, love notes, Mid-South fair,
study hall, Murr Theatre, Rivercrest Colts, French class, laughing.
Prom night, Boone’s Farm, ACT, graduation,
Arkansas State, reunions, laughing.
Marriage, childbirth, careers, margaritas, road trips,
aging parents, empty nest, mother of the bride,
crying, death of parents, remembering, laughing.
50 years later
I love you girls:)))
