UPDATE 4/15 – 2 FALL REUNIONS PLANNED: 1 W/COLLEGE FRIENDS & 2 W/FLIGHT ATTENDANT FRIENDS!
I would like to visit with my long time friends more often. We would make a good effort if we lived closer. For now everyone is in a different time zone. Recently we met up at a college reunion. It had been 3 years since we gathered. I think having friends nearby is really important. I have friendships now but none match those that were forged at college. We all acknowledged that. For some reason people who were there during years of ‘independence’ are a part of the independence you forged.
I also have good friends from my time as a Flight Attendant because back in the day our trips were so long at times about 3 weeks away from home. Again we were young >sigh< and we grew up together in …for most of us…our first grown up job. The times were heady and thru the grace of FB many of us have found each other. Gratefully we have evolved together spiritually. The bond of those friendships is also strong.
Day to day while raising kids I developed and cultivated friendships in the community but none has come close to those college and flying friends. We can see each other and pick up right where we left off. We can be a good coach and listener amongst us.
I’d like to be able to visit more frequently with those friends.
