Catching up with an old friend…

So, we’re still not over our coughs (all three of us are still hacking) but we went out today anyway.  After two weeks, we are long past being contagious.  We’re all still exhausted and run down from being sick for so long, but we needed the sunshine.

My BFF from elementary school, Bekki, was in town this weekend.  So she facebooked me, and the three of us (and the three of them) all got together for lunch today.  It really was such a nice treat.  It was the first time we’d seen one another in NINE years…  a very long overdue visit.

We laughed about some of the sleepovers we had, shared some of our silly memories.  Talked about what’s going on today…  and laughed a LOT about our lives as moms.  I’ll admit, today really made me miss Bekki.

It had been so long since she’d moved away, that her not being a part of my life was normal.  Having her back, even for as short a time as I did, made the lack of involvement seem strange.  We would be fast friends again if she ever decided to move back home to Saskatoon.  And I find myself missing her already.

Funny how much things change, yet how quickly old bonds are rebirthed (given the chance).
