Thoughts of Yesterday

The last month or two have been fairly entertaining. I've seemed to run into a lot of people who I haven't talked to in years. (thank you myspace)

It's been great...remembering. I've laughed a lot and have shaken my head at the stupid things I said, thought or did.

Last night I had dinner with one friend I hadn't seen since college. It was great! We talked as if we'd seen each other yesterday. Well, there was a little catching up to do, a lot of laughing at old pranks/missions trips, but the majority of our conversation is what is happening with us today. I love it when God does that...the whole kindred spirit thing. (btw murph--dan is in tx starting his tour (for lack of a better word) as an army chaplin)

I've had other conversations that haven't involved the now...just memories of what was. And when I ask about now, conversation tends to slow until we're thinking about yesterday again. This makes me wonder if the person I'm talking with is not excited about who they have become.

I don't really plan on understanding how lost friendships work, but I'm incredibly grateful for them nonetheless.

Here here to lost friendships that are found! Elizabeth and I have a highly technical term for this type of relationship - it's called "The Refriend (not refried)" relationship.
