You can have hundreds of friends throughout your lifetime. I believe that people come into your life at different times when you need them. All of them are important, irregardless of the length of time they bless your life. Friends can be either for a season or a lifetime.
Last night one of my "lifetime" friends called me to go out tonight. I haven't seen her for a long time. Her family has had some terrible struggles in the past year. The sad truth - I just couldn't deal with it and I distanced myself. And worse, I was ashamed of myself for it.
So with much trepidation, I accepted her invite. And I had the most lovely time. Honestly, it was like no time had passed at all. We just slipped back into things like nothing. We laughed, we shared (the good, the bad, and the really bad), and we drank copious amounts of wine ;)
I guess it's OK if you don't get to see your old friends as often as you used to. The important part is that you're there when you need each other - like tonight.
