Did you ever feel like you lost your best friend? That’s how I’ve been feeling lately.
I just came back from a whirlwind trip to Milan with a good friend. Three days with a compatible companion in one of the greatest cities in the world was so much fun. Now we’re back to the normal routine, where she and I get together about every 6 weeks or so. I guess you could say I’m going through withdrawal.
Another good friend just moved out of the area. I thought she had trained me to not miss her by getting together infrequently before she left. I was wrong. Knowing that she’s not a short drive away anymore really makes me sad.
I was lucky enough to get together with my childhood and onward BFF last month. We celebrated her birthday with other childhood friends and it was so much fun! Texting, emails and phone calls just cannot replace spending time together in person. We always manage to have some kind of adventure, or misadventure, that keeps us laughing and this time together was no different!
…and my Daughter moved to the other side of the country after her college graduation. It’s slowly occurring to me that she doesn’t live here anymore.
Here’s a toast to all the lovely friends in my life! I love my friends…I just wish we could be together more often.
