She always came early…

Kelsey said, “Is anyone coming early to Dad’s party?”

I replied, “Yeah, Jen and Aaron.”

“That’s what I figured,” she said.

“Miss Lynn always used to come early and so did…” she stopped her sentence.

I finished it…

“Christina always came early,” I finished.

“I just didn’t want to say it,” she replied sadly.

“I know. She always stayed late, too,” I said with a painted on smile as a vivid memory of the last time she left my house after a party danced through my mind.

I am thankful for my friends who come early and stay late. They are the best kind of friends.
