The Art of Friendship

 photo 1 (9)My playground growing up was the apartment complex that I lived in. There cheap mlb jerseys was never a shortage of friends and youthful energy. I remember getting my first pair of roller skates and doing everything with them, even meeting my first best friend. Her name was Debra and once we realized we shared the same birth date, we were inseparable. 

We pretended to be twins and even dressed alike. Our innocence at the way we looked at life during our preteen years is so special to me. We ruled those apartments in our skates and during that time I learned that I was pretty good at rollerskating, kind of mediocre at dancing and just plain horrible at cheerleading. Debra .was the first person I felt a real connection with, it was so organic and natural. 

We are still friends to this day and I love her for being there to protect me, to guide me and to push me to do things I would never have done if she wasn’t in my life then and now.
