It’s Been a LONG Time

October 6th, 2014

Way back in August of 1994 I met five girls when I went to college in Cincinnati. Little did I know that twenty years later we would still be getting together at least once a year to catch up. We had hoped to plan a longer trip, maybe somewhere fun, but with kids, and dogs, and farms, and life that didn’t end up happening. We still had a great time, where we are doesn’t matter as much as being together.

We are hoping to do something fun in the summer of 2016 when we are all 40 (or almost there). We discussed options this trip, hopefully we can settle on a fun location, it might be in Maine!

Mr Chiots and I were talking about how different our lives are now, if we met today we might not all end up becoming friends. I’m thankful I met these lovely ladies so long ago, there’s something very special about friendships that stand the test of time.

    Susy, indeed long lasting friendships are a rarity in today’s world. Well, maybe if you count texting friends that would be lasting longer but even then friends come and go quickly. In my world of friends, I’ve found that if I don’t make the effort to stay in contact the relationship drifts apart and soon becomes non existent. The busy life styles have put strains on the basic relationships. I can only point to one person that I have contact with from my school days. That one is only through email and we communicate only when I send out a catch up email to all my contacts at Christmas time. Life has gotten so busy and the things of the world have gotten so distracting that real friend relationships are very difficult to maintain. You are very blessed to have so many from the past that have stayed in touch.

    Have a great time with long standing friends.
