I just got home from a college reunion of sorts in NYC. A bunch of the girls I went to college with met up in Manhattan. This past Saturday night, my husband and I went out with my two college roommates and their husbands. These women – all of them – are not people I talk to every day, every week, or even every month. But they are people who, if I see their names pop up when the phone rings, or if I need or want to call them, I know I can count on the fact that not only will they recognize my voice, but the conversation will pick up as if we just talked yesterday. This is special. This is unique. I know it, I value it, and I cherish it. I can’t say that about everyone I come into contact with or am friends with. I hope everyone is lucky enough to have at least one of these type of friends in their lives/their pasts. I also know I share that bond with the women I formed this blog with. It’s special, unique, and unlike college, I hope to never be in the position where I speak to them only on occasion but recognize their voice when I do.
So that’s it for today. Appreciate the people in your life that you know hold a special place in your heart. And if the mood strikes you, let them know. I just did!
