There is a special bond among long time friends. Those people you have known since you were a child, must be counted amongst your greatest treasures. Possessed within these lovely woman's minds are memories of me. They hold the secrets of my past. If I should leave this world any day soon, I can count on these woman to hold my memories after I am gone.
I cherish my brief moments in their company. We all have our own lives, busy, all consuming at times. We no longer live within a short drive of one another. A gathering takes effort and planning each time we see one another. I count this effort to gather as time well spent, the resulting meeting is a chance to deposit more memories in one another's minds.
So I will hold my memories of this latest gathering tight, until we can gather once more.........
and I will have the opportunity to place more moments into these lovely Vessels of Memory.
