Yesterday I got a call from a childhood friend who I have not spoken to in decades. Talking to Sally again was a blast! We laughed and giggled like the girls we once were, catching up on news about mutual friends, family, and our own lives. As we hung up the phone, we promised not to let so much time pass before connecting again.
I can’t help thinking of that old Girl Scouts song:
“Make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver and the other gold.”
Tell me about your best childhood friend. Are you still best buds, or have time and distance changed things? Sometimes we’re lucky enough to have friends with whom we can pick up where we left off, almost as if no time has passed. How has the internet helped you stay connected?
