Lunch with Donna & Linda

by | Feb 11, 2010 | friends, relationships

Today I was blessed…I had the privilege of having lunch with a couple friends.  I worked with them years ago…actually sixteen years ago…before our daughter Ali was born.  They day Ali was born I left that job and haven’t stepped back into corporate America since.  I’ve kept in touch with Linda a little better than I have with Donna. 
Donna celebrated a milestone birthday yesterday, so Linda and I took her out for her birthday.  Donna is almost 40 years older than I am, and Linda is almost 20 years older than me.  I’ve always known age really doesn’t need to matter when it comes to relationships, and it certainly doesn’t with us three!  We all seem to be (and act) the same age from the inside, even though the outside might tell a different story.  (I’m very thankful for my Mary Kay facial skin care!) 🙂

We caught up with each other, shared pictures, reminisced about old times and the people we used to work with, we laughed, encouraged each other, and really enjoyed our lunch together.  I think Linda and I may have convinced Donna to get a computer too! 🙂  I just wish I would have thought to pull out my camera and have someone take a picture of us!  We plan to do it again in the future, and I look forward to it!

I cherish the people God has placed in my life, and after today, I’m realizing even more how important relationships are.  Jobs come and go, paychecks get spent quickly, the stuff we acquire is fleeting, and all those things can be gone in an instant.  Why do we put such value on things and stuff?  What really matters are the people in our lives, and what lasts are the memories we create through the relationships we build with those people. 

I’m very thankful tonight for the relationships I have with Donna and Linda, and I look forward to our next time together, whenever that may be!  May God bless them and keep them safe until we’re together again!
