Every Saturday without fail, we meet a group of friends for breakfast. Actually, they are my husband’s friends. They have known each other since high school. They have seen each other through relationships, tragedies, and triumphs. They still share stories, finish each others sentences and know all the inside jokes. I don’t have many friends, and the ones that I do have were not the same folks from high school. That was a LONG time ago. To have some of these people continue to be in your life some 30+ years later just blows my mind!
Three years ago my husband had a heart attack. The group of friends that I mentioned earlier not only came to see my husband in the hospital – they came every day. That really helped hubby during a rough time. Once hubby was recovered from his cardiac event, that was when we started a tradition. Breakfast every Saturday. With a great group of friends.
Do you or your significant other have friends that have been in your life for years? I’d like to hear about it. I’ll talk to you soon.
