I left my little home town at seventeen years of age, I have moved around a lot since then. I have seldom gone back. So much happens between being a confused, rambling teenager, and a content, grounded mum. Over the years I gradually lost touch with many high school friends. However, there was one girl I met when I was thirteen who remains in my life today. This girl loved white chocolate.
Throughout my teenage years I was a little crazier than I would like my daughter to be. I was lost, I was unsure and I couldn’t find quite where I belonged. My white chocolate friend appeared to be the opposite. She was content, settled and seemed to have it all figured out. I loved her calmness, her pleasant nature, her genuine, kind ways. She was everything I wanted to be, whenever we were together I felt good.
Nothing has changed with this lovely lady, she is still a gorgeous person inside and out. I remain a lousy long distance friend, for although she is often in my thoughts I do not pick up the phone as much as I should.
Her road has become a little rough lately and she has been playing on my mind. I wanted to show her that I cared. I know she is implementing some dietary changes, so I am sending these white ones and filling them with love, joy and well wishes.
