My mom and I were talking a few weeks ago about how she hadn’t talked to one of her best friends since mid-July. But they got a hold of each other a few days later, and it was like they had just talked yesterday.
Over the past few months I’ve come to realize that it’s the mark of a good friend if you can pick up with them right where you left off, regardless of the last time you spoke. On Monday, a friend who I hadn’t spoken to since August called. But it wasn’t strange or awkward. We simply started talking about what had happened over the past semester and what we’re doing now and what we’re doing next. It was perfect.
Since I’ve graduated high school and moved on to college these type phone calls happen more and more frequently. When I get one, it makes my day. I remember just how lucky I am to have such strong friendships.
Anyway, I already know what I’ll be blogging about next week. I’m hoping to get it up on Monday, and if you have a case of the Mondays you’ll want to check it out. The first commentator who correctly identifies the movie “case of the Mondays” is from gets to choose a topic for next week. Think of it as a competition of sorts.
