"Mix It Up with Melange" Challenge ~ TIMELESS

This week's challenge over at the Melange Team Blog is TIMELESS. When I think of things that defy time, I think of friendships that endure despite distance and life changes.

The collage pictured was made as a gift for my friend of almost 40 years, and our friendship is indeed timeless. We have lived as much as 3000 miles apart and have been "out of touch" for as long as two years, but we have always managed to find each other again. A friendship that began in the sixth grade is as strong and sustaining as ever. And now we are blessed to watch the friendship between our boys blossom and grow. A timeless gift.

What a delightful gift! Lifelong friendships are such treasures. I'm sure this thrilled your friend beyond measure!

In response to Jessie's post, yes, I was thrilled to receive this gift from Nancy, and I do treasure it, as I do our friendship. Reading Nancy's blog today brought tears to my eyes.

Nancy and I were in art class together in middle school and in HS, and it was evident even back then that she was gifted. I am so happy for her and proud of her that she has found her artistic voice again in adulthood. Nancy, other than Rich, I am your biggest fan, in art and in life. Love, Chris
