Day #105: Friendships that Span Decades

Twelve years ago we graduated from college.  That doesn't seem possible, yet it seems like a million years ago.  It is hard to remember being so young and ambitious, full of hope, and dreaming about what was yet to come.  A lot has happened in twelve years, but some things never change.

Tonight we spent some time with a few guys from our college days (one was from my youth as well).  It's been many years since we've seen each other, but when back in the same room it felt like hardly any time had passed at all.  They were able to meet our kids and we got a chance to meet one of our friend's.  So much has happened in those twelve years, but on this evening it was just a gathering of old friends and an opportunity to reminisce about the good old days.

I loved that our children were with us.  It is not often that they get to see people we've been friends with for over a decade.  I hope at least our oldest son was able to realize that friendships can last many, many years and those friendships are a precious commodity.

I hope fewer years pass before we cross paths again, but for this night I am grateful.  Until next time!
