friendship

I just hung up from a lengthy phone conversation with one of my oldest friends. We haven't spoken to each other in over ten years and until last year had no contact whatsoever. I'm so thankful and happy that we are now "together" once again. Isn't it amazing how you can not talk to someone for such a long time and pick up right where you left off??

She said to me, "I feel like I know you again"....me too. I can't wait for our kids to meet each other and to play, maybe in the surf, or maybe in the mountains.

I also think how incredible it is that we were not in each other's lives and still ended up on the same path....kids the same ages, same faith, same values. Life is so much more wonderful with a friend. A true friend.

She knows all about my dorkiness in high school and loves me just the same, or rather, loved me just the same. We were so alike, most thought we were sisters and deep down, she is my sister. I love you, RS. Thanks for a second chance.

Great story. I had a falling out with a friend years ago and we reconnected a year later (despite saying some really hurtful things to each other) and it felt so good!!! Friends are the best. :-)

I have a couple of friends that I "lost contact" with for different reasons. Reconnecting with them was awesome. Sometimes I think we just need a little time to "grow up" & gain some perspective to appreciate each other. =)
