A couple of weeks ago I went to my school reunion, and connected with friends from years ago. In some ways, none of us had changed.
We slipped back into old relationships like we had never been apart. Yet we had been apart, for quite some time, and for many of us there were pieces missing and there wasn’t enough time to fill all the gaps.
For the most part, the weekend was filled with laughter and great memories and I loved it. At times, however, there was a hint of sadness. Sadness for those who are experiencing broken relationships with each other or family members. Sadness for those who don’t want to see each other again because of past hurts.
It has made me realise how much I love people, and how important relationships are. They are worth treasuring through the years. People are worth remembering. Taking time to connect is priceless.
I’m sure there’s a song in that…..
