I've known Mireya since our grade school days, and we've been friends ever since. We kind of went our separate ways in high school and met new friends along the way, but we've always remained friends. Here we are in eighth grade.
She was the first one to introduce me to the fascinating world of jewelry.
When we were young girls, she used to go to the local bead shop and buy all kinds of beads and jewels and make her own bracelets, necklaces, etc.
She is taking care of her mom and dad right now, which I admire so much. Her dad is very ill, and this has been a difficult time for her. She's a pretty knowledgeable business woman. She ran her parent's business for years and is sharp with finances.
I have been meeting up with her frequently so we can have some girl time while she's taking care of her parents. I enjoy it so much; she always has funny and interesting stories to tell. She's a good friend, and she has been on my mind lately.
