3 Days till Christmas – spreading love by spending time with one of my oldest friends
And by oldest, I don’t mean age. I mean length of time of friendship.
There are a couple girls whom I’ve known since my college days that have remained a constant in my life. And while we don’t see each other all that often (living in different cities), it never matters. It’s quality over quantity. And as soon as we’re in the same room again, it’s like time hasn’t moved and we can pick up right where we left off.
I cherish this not only because it’s rare but because it’s valuable to me. A friendship that has spanned over the course of twenty years is not something to take lightly. It’s something to be appreciated for what it is.
And tonight, I was given the opportunity to show my love and appreciation for one of my oldest friends. We’ve known each other for twenty years and have seen each other at our worsts and bests. And I adore her.
She’s in town for the holidays and graciously made time to come visit me.
Tonight, I made her dinner. As she looked through my wedding photos, we chatted about our lives and the direction they’ve gone. She caught up with my husband. And as we ate cheese ravioli with a vodka cream sauce, we reminisced about days gone and spoke of our plans for the future.
Spending time with old friends is a most lovely way to spread love. And I highly recommend it.
“The only way to have a friend is to be one.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
