Day 4: Friends

I have been seeing an e-card floating around Facebook that says something to the effect of, “The older I get, the more I realize that it’s less important to have lots of friends than it is to have just a few great ones.” That is so true! My husband and I often joke about the fact that we have so few friends, but the thing is, we are completely okay with that! We relish in the time that we have together as a family and couldn’t imagine any better friends than ourselves! However, tonight, I was reminded of how important it is to foster those relationships that mean the most to us. My family and I met up for dinner with a friend of mine from high school. It had been nearly 13 1/2 years since we had seen each other, yet there was never a lull in our conversation! We talked for nearly 3 hours and even had to leave conversations unfinished. It’s hard to “make time” for relationships with others outside our home, but those relationships are just as important to our hearts and souls!

In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.
~Albert Schweitzer

I’ll end tonight’s short and sweet post with a song that has been running through my mind. It’s pretty cheesy, as it dates way back to my Girl Scout days, but I have to share it anyway!

“Make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver, and the other’s gold!’

Thank you, Vionne, for reminding me how golden our “old” friendship is!
