I have had lots of mini-reunions lately...and most of them have been unplanned.
Since I live in the same town I grew up in, I occasionally run into someone from high school or earlier. But that's not really noteworthy.
These reunions have been with some of my closest friends from elementary school through high school. And I only ran into them through other people...so they were pretty unexpected. Plus, some college friends visited last weekend. I know people talk about "picking up right where you left off" - and I haven't always know that it's possible. I mean, there are a few topics (job, school, family, etc.) that you always hit...but you wonder what you'll talk about once you finish going through that list. Well I feel blessed that among all of these reunions, we were really able to just be ourselves - amidst all the change that we've been through.
So, I just have to say that I am really grateful that Ami still loves to talk fast, that Beth is still good at making witty commentary during performances, and that Brunsie is still such a good listener...
Sometimes it takes spending a few hours with someone to make you realize how much you missed them.
