Throwback Theme Song Thursday:) You’ve Got A Friend

3 Nov

“There is no friend like an old friend who has shared our morning days, no greeting like his welcome, no homage like his praise.”

~Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.


I was waxing nostalgic the other day, looking at old photos on Facebook. I ran across this picture of my “BIG BLUE CUP.”

My friend Lin gave me this cup a long time ago. Was it before I moved to Texas in ’04, or maybe she sent it after I moved? I don’t remember now.  Either way, my big blue cup reminds me of my dear friend, and all the good times we’ve shared. It reminded me of the importance of friendship, and love, and memories, and more.

It was funny, because Lin called me this afternoon, and we talked for about an hour and a half, just catching up and reminiscing. I told her about the cup, it’s my favorite. It’s very big and holds a lot of tea. But, it also holds so many memories.

I often wonder if other people surround themselves with special treasures and gifts from friends and family. They are just things, but sometimes, one little thing can tell a long story. This is the story of the big blue cup…

I’ll see you in December, my friend.
