My wife has connected with several of her friends from high school via Facebook over the past couple of years. Jobs, husbands, and family have scattered them across the western united states. They recently got together after more than 30 years without contact. My wife was nervous about the trip, thinking that they’d have nothing in common anymore, and spend the weekend staring at each other.
She was pleasantly surprised to find that nothing at all had changed. They talked non stop from the moment they met in the airport till they all flew home. I’m guessing that it was a weekend filled with pedicures and pillow fights (or whatever girls do when they get together). Take this as a reminder that friends and family are the important things in life.
