One of my grade school friends recently found me on Facebook and we've been chatting back and forth about things we remember from way back when. She moved away when her Dad graduated from college, and I was so absolutely crushed.
Years upon years later Mizzou got on the Facebook bandwagon, and hers was one of the first names I searched for... and then every once in a while for a couple of years, but I never found her. Well, turns out she got married and hyphenated her name. She couldn't remember how to spell mine, but a couple of days ago she hit the jackpot!
Here's to fond memories of being little girls without a care in the world, always making sure there was enough time left over to play. I hope someday my own kids can say they had as good of a childhood as I did.
