After all these years
Really, none of us have changed much at all. Oh sure, a few pounds have been packed on by everyone except Donna, Jim, and Anita, and a few gray hairs shine through, except for Barry and that's simply because he has no hair for us to know if it is gray or not. =) Otherwise, I would have recognized any of them if I had run in to them.
What was so wonderful is that even though it has been many, many years since most of us have seen one another, we picked up just like this was a monthly gathering. The only way to tell we were catching up for the first time in close to 20 years was to listen to our conversations. "Where do you live now?" "How many children do you have?" "Do you parents still live in the same place?"
Last night proved that TRUE friendships can and will overcome all times and distances. I just hope it isn't another 25 years before we get together again.
