My twenty year reunion is coming up this summer. The first question i usually get asked is…how is someone so young and vibrant having a twenty year reunion? The second question is are you going?
Am I going to my twenty year reunion? Probably not. Why you may ask? There really isn’t anyone I am still in contact with. No one I really want to see (if you are from my graduating class and are offended sorry about that). So am I a bad friend for not having kept in contact with my high school friends?
My mother has always said that your true friends are the ones you meet in college. I have to say I do agree with this statement. Well at least to some degree. When I envision people who are my friends I do picture some people from college but am I a good friend to them?
One of my great friends from college had her first child in January of 2010. Have I seen her child? Nope. Do I feel bad about that? Sure. We talk about getting together all the time but these get togethers are few and far in between.
I have another friend who has had his second child who I have never meet.
Another friend who is married and I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting her husband.
Yes I know I am shaking my head too. I know I should do more. Make a stronger effort. Be a better friend.
Still I know if you ask any of the three friends mentioned above if I am their friend they would say yes. that they know if they were in need and asked anything of me I would make it happen. So maybe I am not a bad friend. A bit of a lazy friend.
Still if it wasn’t for technology I wouldn’t be in contact with any of my friends. Yeah technology.
