A few of my girlfriends and I got together earlier this week. I’ve known these women for 13 years. We all worked together at one point or another in the marketing department of a national company. Imagine a marketing dept of 20 employees and the majority of them women – we worked well together, or maybe it’s because our cycle was aligned 🙂 Although none of us work at the company anymore, our friendship remained.
It is by chance we met, by choice we became friends ~ Henri Nouwen
It was great getting together for lunch to talk about what’s going on in our lives, eating homemade pizza, salad and drinking wine out on the deck.
Throughout the years, someone went through a divorce; someone got remarried; someone became a grandmother; someone adopted a baby; someone became an empty nester; someone survived breast cancer. We’ve never been on the same page of life, but that’s the beauty of it.
Friends are those rare people who ask how we are and then wait to hear the answer ~ Henri Nouwen
We used to see each other 5x wk now we get together 1-2x a year. Maybe next year we don’t see each other at all and what remains are the memories we’ve shared.
For now, we agreed we’re going to meet again in August at Kim’s house; and that’s good enough for me.
