A great day with an old friend

I got an unexpected call this morning from an old friend of mine - one I havent seen in almost two years, but have missed very much. Our lives just got busy... mine with Grandmother and hers with a new job and a new man in her life.

Before all of that, we used to spend a lot of time together. If not in person then on the phone. She was a great friend always - the best listener and always supportive and encouraging. Our children are about the same age too, which made it fun for all of us.

We've phoned here and there over the last couple of years but we just hadnt found (or made) the time to get together. When she called this morning I took the opportunity to invite her out for the day, and we made plans to get the kids together and grill out.

It was a great time - the kids were wound up and had a blast, and Shiney and I talked for hours on end. So much to catch up on! We shared pictures and stories... made lunch on the grill and ate outside on paper plates... laughed, talked about old times, you name it.

She's still a great friend :) If you've got one... call 'em up! Life shouldnt get too busy for days like this.
