Old friends

Familiar, yet different.

During the past few weeks I’ve had the opportunity to catch up with old friends. Friendships changed by the fact I’ve moved or changed job.

Some of these catch ups have been easy, like a familiar worn piece of clothing you much love. Others, while wonderful, just felt different.

I’ve been blessed by some pretty great friends and friendships with some pretty amazing people and I’m not keen to let them slip away. I’m well aware that as these friendships evolve, there will be times when they take a little more effort, might not be like they were before and that’s okay. That’s not to say it’s easy.

This week I’m spending time focusing on the faraway friends, the friends I’ve drifted from based purely due to location. I’m making an effort to invest.

They’re facebook friends, and that helps us stay in touch, but friendship’s about more than facebook.

Life’s too short to spend time wishing you’d made the effort.
