*I’ve moved the list of links of my full 30 Days of Truth to the original post here.

As a child I had an American friend.  Her mother was South African and her Grandparents lived here.  Every year they came to visit.

We were born a few weeks apart and right from the start we were friends.  We played together non stop each time she was here, picking up where we left off.  Between visits we wrote letters (way before emails people!).

Sometime around puberty/high school we started to drift.  Letters became sporadic and visits to SA were fewer…

There was no great big fight, there was no real end to our friendship, we just drifted.  We connected again on Facebook a few years ago but thats about it.
