A VERY VERY PRECIOUS DAY :
today two long-time friends
(mother and daughter)
A good forty (!) years ago
they lived in our village and we became friends :
the mothers and the daughters (mostly)
(because the mothers and the fathers had the same names, we always
referred to each other as "the other ..." , our children called us at
our first name instead of mom and dad )
They moved somewhere else in Holland
but we still kept in touch though not as frequently ...
And then the parents moved to France
(without their (almost) grown children)
But from time to time we wrote.
After some sad time
now my namesake is visiting lots
of old friends in Holland.
For the "girls"it was about 30 years since they
had seen each other !
WHAT A SWEET MEMORY-DAY IT WAS !!!
