Childhood Friends

The Author of this post is Velma Baird

When I was in my teens, I had two best friends. They were actually sisters and their names were Rachel and Gabby. We used to hang out almost every single day. We were all home schooled and our mothers liked to allow us to study and work together in school. I used to love going by their house because they had a trampoline and a hot tub. We would often bounce around on the trampoline all day and then spend the evening in the hot tub. I have a lot of good memories from my childhood because of my sisterly best friends.

As we got older, we kind of drifted apart. Our mothers no longer had anything in common and because of that, we would not get to see each other on a regular basis. I'm still somewhat in touch with the sisters though. In fact, about a month ago, I made sure to set my Adt home security alarm before I left and went to visit Rachel at her apartment in New Jersey. We still have a few things in common, but we didn't "click" like we did when we were kids. It's actually kind of sad how things can change in just a matter of years. Sometimes I wish I had my childhood back, just so I can still be close with my best friends.
