Great Cakes - Better Friends!

Turning 60 caused a moment of introspection and retrospection

Just celebrated my 60th and, as I looked around at my circle of friends, I was struck by the incredible history I have with them.  As a kid, my family moved frequently, not just to a new school or town, but often to a new country on a different continent.  Friends were replaced with the same frequency as outgrown school shoes. 

At this  birthday celebration, I saw friends who have been attending my birthday parties for over 30 years.

Sure, I've lost touch with lots of folks, and there are new people who have come into my life, but I'm so touched and grateful for the core of friends who appear again and again in my photo albums, celebrating birthdays, holidays, and, more importantly off-camera, those peak (good and bad) moments of my life.
