Tonight I am going to a reunion to see friends I have not seen in over 30 years. I am looking forward to it and at the same time it makes me a little nervous. Will I remember everyone will everyone remember me?
We lived in the same area and went to elementary school and junior high school together. My family moved at the beginning of my high school years. I stayed in touch with a few very close friends throughout high school and marriage. After my divorce a couple of others got divorced as well and somehow we lost touch.
A few years ago I searched on Facebook for my friends and was able to get in touch with two of them and one of them was not on Facebook but her son was. We all hooked up on the phone and the four of us decided to meet in Las Vegas. It was so great being together again. They are the type of friends you don’t see very often but when you do you can pick up right where you left off. What a wonderful time we had!
Since then we have managed to get together a couple of other times. It is most difficult to have everyone be available at the same time and we are spread out between California and Nevada. Tonight one of my closest girlfriends will be there and the other two are not available. I look forward to see who shows up and who remembers who and who looks the same, who is doing what and living where.
Have you gone to a reunion lately? Did you recognize anyone? How do you stay in touch with your friends that do not live close by?
