I’ve been thinking of the song we used to sing in Girl Scouts: “Make new friends, but keep the old, one is silver but the other is gold.”
This morning I was able to spend some time with friend I met years ago, but most of my contact with old friends is through the internet.
There’s something special about spending time in the presence of people who share memories.
Today we call that FaceTime, but in past years that term didn’t exist.
It’s wonderful that we can now keep in touch with others we care about through electronics, but it’s just not the same as seeing people in real life.
I hope everyone who reads this gets to spend some time with old friends in real life between now and the end of the year.
