Reuniting With Old Friends

March 9th 2007

Earlier this week I had the pleasure of reuniting with old friends in Illinois where we grew up and we had a blast.

We gathered to discuss and plan our high school class reunion for this fall, and we did manage to squeeze in some of the planning in our discussion, but the evening was dominated with catching up, telling stories, and laughing an awful lot.

Everyone seemed to have a good time and it was really neat to see and be with friends after so many years. In many ways, it seemed as if we never went our separate ways. We’re all connected in some way and it was great to see everyone just let down their guard, be themselves, and share some memorable moments from our high school days as well as discuss family and what we’re up to these days.

We didn’t talk about material things, which was refreshing, we talked mainly about family and friends.

Some stories (wow!) we likely wouldn’t have shared during our high school days! But as Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them.”

There were only nine of us who gathered at the restaurant, and we discussed how neat it will be when a few hundred of our classmates and their families will join us in the fall at our reunion. No doubt that will be a lot of fun.
