Some 30 years ago, when I was 17 years old I left home to attend college in Florida. I was so blessed to have a wonderful roommate. Diane and I remain friends to this day. She lives in Florida and I in New York so we do not get to see each other as often as I would like. We have seen each other through our share of life’s ups and downs. We have seen death of loved ones, divorce, family issues, financial issues. We have also enjoyed so many good times, weddings, christenings, beach trips, hiking. We share stories about our children and it feels like home when we are together. We both love our faith and Diane gave me this lovely cross as a Christmas gift. I am grateful for our friendship. True friendships, have unconditional love, are honest and forgiving. I hope we are friends for another 30 years and I love my cross with the mustard seed!!
