“We’ll be friends forever, won’t we, Pooh?” Asked Piglet.
“Even longer,” replied Pooh.
The Adventures of Winne-the-Pooh
Today I had the great pleasure of going to brunch with two of my closest friends, Chelsea and Kevin.
It’s been a couple of weeks since I last saw/talked with Chelsea and the better part of a year for Kevin.
You know what… we picked up right where we left of.
These wonderful friends of mine will soon be leaving the great state of Missouri to move to Colorado. First, I am so very very excited for them. I think this is a great opportunity for them both. I think God has so much in store for them that none of us can begin to comprehend. Secondly, I’m a little sad that they will not longer be 15 minutes away. Though we live so close to one another we don’t get the chance of hang out as often as any of us would like (sometimes adulting really stinks).
Despite this sadness I know everything will be fine. I know that we will be friends for the rest of our lives, no matter how many states apart we are. How do I know? Because of days like today, picking up right where we left off. Talking about things that matter. Depth of conversation is a big indicator to the longevity of any relationship you have in your adult life. If you have the ability or want to talk with someone about important, relevant, delicate, and in any way sensitive information with relative ease you’ve got a friend for life.
So while I will remain to be sad that my friends are leaving, I’ll be happy in knowing that it holds no weight in the structural integrity of our friendship.
‘ll also enjoy the silver lining ….that I’ll have a mighty valid reason to visit the ever beautiful Colorado on a semi-regular basis!
