Today we visited some old friends to celebrate a Ruby Wedding. Some of these people we had not seen for over thirty years. While some were recognised instantly, others looked and felt like strangers; but almost at once it was like we had never been away. The greetings were amazing, with everyone hugging each other, talking of old times and how families were doing. The whole time was just so amazing, talking until well past midnight, with still more to say.
At breakfast time the talking continued on from the night before until it was time for us all to say goodbye once again.
Those twenty four hours made me appreciate the importance of what true friendship really means.
