There are so many types of friendships and all are important blessings in one way or another. Yet there is a special group of friends that share a very important part of life – The friends we made in college or in my case nursing school.
I went to Newport Hospital School of Nursing 1975-1978. Those were the years of first independence and my first taste of adulthood. We became men and woman together, developed our social consciousness and a taste for beer. We experienced life wearing rose-colored glasses and our hearts on our sleeves. We laughed (boy did we laugh) we loved and we learned about being a true friend. How to lean on someone you barely knew.
We were truly in it together. We shared the same dream, the same classes, the same jobs and most of us lived together. I can’t think of a closer environment except for the military. This is why these people will always hold a very special place in my heart…
To quote Paul Simon ” A time it was, and what a time it was – A time of innocents a time of confidences.”
