What a rich fall I’m having! Time with Enid, a long weekend in the Smokies with my family (all nine of us), a day to myself at the lovely Hilton Anatole, traveling with Steve, and time with dear friends we hadn’t seen in years.
Time with old friends is so dear. We talked about our children and gtrandchildren, our churches, our retirement jobs, food preferences (they are now vegan), books, and mutual acquaintances. We prayed together, laughed together (a lot), ate together (a lot), and even shed some tears together.
I thank God for the gift of friendship. He saw that man should not live alone, and that is still true today–for men and women. I thank God that he gifted people with the ability to make and fly planes and the ability to make the internet available for us to stay in touch so easily.
We were as comfortable together as though we hadn’t lived in different states since 1987.
Do you have old friends like that?
