I know that my mum had a friend from her young age, unfortunately her friend had passed away 2 years ago. I just see it's a sweet thing indeed to have a friend from your young age till you grown up and have a new life but still contacting each other and knowing every changes happened in each other life. Marriage, getting pregnant, having the 1st baby, family problems, etc. However, with this more complex and modern world than the past years, I think the friend who long lasted is now rarely to have or find, isn't it? For me, I have 2 long lasting friends now from my junior high school, and hopefully, it will still long lasted until we're old. :)

In my country, this thing is normal. All my member in my family have long lasted friend, my father, my mother, uncle even my grandpa( he's 90 now ) My mother's friends in junior, high school, university still visit her every month. I've 2 childhood friend live next to my house, studied at the same school as me and now working at the same company with me. Wonderful right?

Yes I do have that type of friendship. I met her through her sister who was my friend. Although our friendship has not started since we are as young as your mother and her childhood friend we have the same intensity of friendship rarely found. We both believe that we are soul sisters, since no one can understand us better than each other. Our friendship begun 1995 and is still growing strong despite the 2 years of separation since she got married and migrated to America. Still, we do keep our friendship alive through communicating by FB or through yahoo mail.She was my daughter's god child too hence our friendship extended even to our immediate family as well. Her mother and my mother both are friends because of us and so is the rest of our families. When we miss her, her Mom and I do send sms messages or emails to keep each other updated on news about her. It is really a rare kind of friendship that has stood through so much during the span of it's time.

Hi, Starrose, you reminded me, it's one of the sweet things of this long lasting friend. We will know very well both family and we indirectly have the step brothers, or step sisters that always have an open hand to us.

Yes, you're lucky. I have had lots of school friends and seemed we're closed each other last time but now it's just left 2 closed friends only.

What a sweet story with your mom and her friend. I do find that such friendships are hard to come by these days as too many people are living way too fast and or are moving into too many directions. I do wish to someday be able to look back with a dear friend as we both rock in chairs and laugh so hard about the good and bad times. Thanks for the reminding me on how sweet it can be to cherish long lasting friendships.

My oldest friend has been my friend for over 55 years. Most of her life she has lived in another country yet, even before emails, there were long letters from each side and we knew about ieach otherĀ“s life. Now we email, chat, talk by Skype and use the technology to be nearer. But the most important thing is that we care for each other.

WoW, it's really sweet. I do wish me and my 2 friends will remain as friends until that long too. I don't know yet how it feels, however, I can imagine one day, we're gathering and nostalgia talking about our past days. I'm pretty sure, it will be full of laughters and tears. Hmmm ... I think I'm in sentimental mood tonight :p

It is a very good matter and healthy to keep our childhood friends and make connection with them. They are the best instrument for sharing our sorrows and worries. But...after marriage all become busy and so it is is impossible to maintain relationship with them. But exception in someone's case.

I find it overwhelming to have to know something for a long time. I'm just 30, but I still keep in contact with a lot of my friends from high school. I do have one friend I've known since I was 5 and we still keep in contact. It's still possible to find true and real friends in this world. It's important to keep in contact with the friends we have know since when we were younger. But time isn't a factor for true friendship. What matters is treasuring and valuing the friends today :)

Yeah, it is difficult to have long lasting friend in this busy life but I have friends since my high school and we remain in contact with each other, even I am away from home for last two years but we are still in contact with each other, it is very good to hear from them and tell them my situation, for me it is just like a gift of God...:) Be happy and be the reason of happiness in others life...:)

Friendships are relationships that we value for life. We can only hope that we can have a friendship to endure for a lifetime. it is a special feeling. i hang on to the feeling that a friend I have now will always be there to share with me.

Well, I still believe in that too. My mum has lots of them because they are just relatives, and some are from her college years whom she is still contacting occasionally- she's in her 50s now. It's great to have friends like that, who've been with you through thick and thin, and knows almost everything about you. I have friends like that from elementary and high school and I also hope it will last forever..
