Today I said Good Bye!
Wednesday, February 27, 2008
There reaches a time when old friends grow apart. It took a long time for me to reach the decision to completely sever the ties with these old friends. It was not an easy decision for me. Today, I decided the time had come. Goodbye to those dear old friends who served me so well.
I had spent no time with these dear friends since last Spring. Things change - life happens. They were replaced by newer friends and almost forgotten. Today, I broke the final tie.
With fear in my heart, I lovingly washed and folded all my size 12 jeans - a few 14's had sneaked into the group - and took them to the Thrift store. They have lain neglected in my closet all these months, waiting for me to need them again. After all, I kept their cousins, the 8's and 10's, until they were needed.
Unhappily for them, I have grown much fonder of the 8's and 10's than I ever was of the 12's and 14's.
So - Good bye old friends. I won't be needing you! I really love the 8's and 10's!
