Tribute to a friendship.
Saturday Lindsey and I went to one of our favorite flea markets. I was drawn to this sweet little poem picture in the quaint vintage frame. I thought it was a very sweet sentiment and I turned it over in my hands. On the back was the inscription: To Millie from Wilma Lee Jan 15 1944. That clenched it, for $4 this sweet little bit of history was mine.
I thought about the two ladies whose friendship was evident in this expression. Were they childhood friends who developed into adults together? Did they become acquainted because their kids played together? Maybe they became neighbors. Did they sew together? Talk over the back fence?
Just the fact that this little sentiment was in the flea market leads me to think that most likely Millie and Wilma Lee are no longer living. It would certainly be interesting to know more about these great friends and all the talks and fun they probably had.
I will do my part in preserving the memory of these two ladies who valued their friendship. I will display Millie’s plaque and remember the value of a true friend and think of the wonderful friendships that we are making through the wonderful world of blogging. Lindsey and I appreciate all who have been so kind to us.

One who sees you through and through,
Understands the things you do,
Keeps pullin’ just for you –
That’s a friend.
One who trusts you all the while
Grips your hand and shares a smile,
Bears no thought unless worth while –
That’s a friend!
Wishing you much happiness!
