My 20-year high school reunion was a few months ago. I didn’t go because it was too far away – in Hawaii. I mean, Hawaii would have been a beautiful trip for us to take, but the friends I really wanted to see weren’t even going. So I skipped Hawaii and spent this past weekend in Cleveland with my 2 good friends Mary and Ruth.
I found myself digging through my old yearbooks and pictures. Putting packing on hold while reminiscing about old times. Then, at the last minute decided to make minipatchfolios for my sweet friends.
It’s amazing to me how the people you grow up with and play Barbies with effect you.
It’s also amazing the sheer amount of time we spent with our friends back then – all day at school and then often after school.
Now I find myself marvelling about how m u c h we change and how m u c h we stay the same.
It was good to revisit and reconnect. I was surprised at how much I missed my family. The boys were having a fabulous time with Daddy, eating junk fun food and biking in the rain. It was good to be gone, but also good to be home.
Now home, I am enjoying the blessings of family.
