A Little Reunion

Monday, December 16, 2013

This weekend (after a year apart!), I got together with some of the most important ladies in my life to celebrate Christel's return from volunteering 11 months in 11 countries. The rest of us had seen each other in Michigan a few months ago, but having the whole gang together just feels so different. We laughed so much. It was like we had saved it up all year. Christel told us stories, we discussed what she had seen and learned, and talked about our own friendship. It's funny, we're all very different, and we discussed how, if we met as strangers now, we probably wouldn't have the kinds of relationships we have with each other. But with the 14 years we have behind us, we've created something special.

Despite little Internet everywhere Christel went this year, she always updated us often on where she was, what she was doing. We picked up exactly where we had left off last year, and I went home so grateful for having these people in my life.


^^ Christel got us these scarves, and they're probably not intended to be worn any of these ways, but you know.

Can't wait for more of this over the holidays. I've realized over the past few years that making and keeping friends isn't easy, and that you need good friends to get through things. Can I say it one more time? Thankful for this bunch.
