Yesterday, I made the drive down to the big city where I met up with one of my dear old friends for a special lunch date. I was so excited because it has been at least ten years since we've seen each other.  We were a part of a tight knit group of friends that went to church together through our teen years.  We went to summer camps and  retreats together, and  even traveled across the country in a church bus without air-conditioning one summer to go on a ministry trip together.

Here we are on our Senior Ski Trip to Purgatory, just outside of Durango, Colorado:

Just a couple of Snow Bunnies!

During college, we all went in separate directions, but have since reconnected.

My favorite part of lunch yesterday was the fact that after all of these years apart, we could pick right up where we left off. In one sense, it felt like no time had passed at all, and in another, it was like we had a decade of life, and marriage, and kids to catch up on.

I think that in many ways we're both still the same, only better.  We've matured, and grown, and have a new perspective on life.  We've always shared our love for God, but now we have marriage and motherhood, and a host of other things that bind us. 

We laughed as we shared the twists and turns of life that brought us to the point we're at today.  Now we're separated by lots of miles, but I'm thankful for the technology that keeps us connected.

It was such a special afternoon.

I just love reconnecting with old friends.  It's one of life's sweetest joys.
