The return of an old friend


By CHRIS MILLSPAUGH

I hadn't seen him for awhile and I must admit that I missed him. We had been close for many years and he had rarely let me down. Several weeks ago, he seemed to change almost. For awhile I believed he was gone forever.

We had been through a lot of ups and downs in life—a lot of hard times, yet he had remained loyal—always there whenever I needed him.

Sometimes in life, things don't make any sense. You rack your brain to try and figure out what went wrong. Then, if you don't know, you have to let it go.

Then, miraculously, he came back. It was like old times again—like nothing had ever happened. I guess you don't really value anything until it's taken away.

This time, I intend to hold onto this bond, to ensure that nothing comes between us again. When you have something that works, you must not handle it lightly. You must remember what keeps the sparks alive.

Now, with the coming of spring and the rebirth of life in our gardens, there awaits much joy and fulfillment for everyone. It's time we appreciate this resurrection and use it in the most satisfying ways.

Welcome back, old friend, let's get ready for the warm seasons and nice talking to you.
