OK, I admit it. I’m a friend addict. I have a dazzling array of wonderful friends. Each of you brings something different and wonderful to my life. Today’s technology means that I have tiny glimpses into so many of your lives, it gives us a dailiness that distance and time don’t permit.
Facebook doesn’t lend itself to long luxurious conversations, but it does allow you to know that if you haven’t picked up the phone regularly or scheduled that long luxurious lunch or the short intense cup of tea, when you need to do that.
Friends and friendships need tending. They take work. But the dividends? My sister Deb and I were talking the other day about a Girl Scout song. Trite? You betcha! True? Bingo.
C’mon, all together now: Make new friends, and keep the old, one is silver and the other gold.
And there’s your earworm for today! Enjoy it. Call a friend.
