Friendship
Published on Monday, February 4, 2013 by

The little boy in preschool.

The girl who sits next to you in first grade.

The group of kids you hang with on your street.

Your very best friend in high school.

The girl who lives in the dorm room next to you.

Your first roomie after college.

Your new husband.

Your mother.

The woman across the street.

And finally, as she holds your hand in your final hours, you look in to your daughter’s eyes and realize that she was your greatest friend of all.

  • Beautiful stuff Katherine, and so simply stated. I take my hat off to you. Indigo

  • Wow. I need some of Cheesy Mike’s Kleenex.

  • Katherine that is so touching, and tear inducing. Glad Mike bought a big supply of Kleenex. Pass the box please.

  • Ron

    You have no idea how much that touched me, Katherine, after just having lost my mother.

    ((((((( You ))))))

    Beautiful post, my friend! You are such a wonderful writer!

    awwww… that is so true…. I dread the day my mom passes…..she has been and always will be my #1 supporter- no matter what, damn and now I’m crying… I gotta email my mom….

  • How incredibly touching, Katherine. Wonderful job. 🙂

    Or in my case, you realize that she’s holding a pen and wants you to amend the will before you go.

  • Are you trying to make me cry??? Really, are you??? (great post but that picture is breaking my heart)

  • And now I’m sobbing.

  • Aw… so sweet. But why is there an ad underneath this wonderful post for a a FB tool that shows who “unfriended” you? I cry foul!

  • This was really nicely done. And really covers the theme well. Nice work.

  • Really touching. Well done, Katherine.

  • Wow. Well done, Katherine.

    This is lovely. I admit, I felt a little pang of heartache and longing at the end. It almost makes me less skeptical about having children. Almost.
