Today I went to lunch with my sister, where we ate yummy enchiladas and talked about raising our children, because everyone knows how much easier it is to visit and talk about important things when there is food involved.
This same theme carried over into the evening when some of our family's closest friends came over for dinner. I had not spent time with these great folks for 2 decades, and it was so good to catch up and basically to just enjoy their spirits. Such good influences on me.
Tomorrow it will be more food and more talking as I meet with a high school friend and then with a couple of college friends from back in the day.
People don't realize the imprint they leave. I have no idea if or when my own has been left. But I do know this - I like the reconnecting. I like the chance to rekindle. And I like reflecting on relationships that have mattered to me.
I am such a girl.
