Tennis and Friendship

It was a real treat to get a text from one of "our" kids.  He was in town for a college tennis match, so we quickly scarfed down some dinner and headed out.

In his younger days, there was an agreement...if he hand-delivered the newspaper to me while I was relaxing on the couch, I would have fresh bread ready for him in the kitchen.  It was a great deal for both of us.

Thousands of meals later, as well as snacks, sleepovers, talks, games, and times of laughter, he turned into a man.  It's truly our privilege to count his as a close friend.

  1. What a lovely memory! Even after they've grown into adults, isn't it wonderful that when we think of them, it's of childhood.
