Party by Susan L.
A high school friend celebrated their twenty-fifth anniversary yesterday. Her husband arranged a surprise party for her. It was good to see them, these high school sweethearts who have gone the distance. I don't see them often or even talk to them. It's the kind of friendship where it doesn't seem to matter. We simply pick up where we left off. The tiny house was crowded with well-wishers. It was noisy, as parties tend to be, but my anxiety failed to get the better of me. It reared its head a couple times. I simply went outside for a few minutes. It helped that I knew a lot of the people and could focus on catching up. Even if it has been a (gasp!) quarter century. I was her maid of honour at the wedding. Once again it is an honour to witness the deep and tender love the two hold for each other. May they have many more years together. Amen! "For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh." Eph 5:31
