You know how it is with some people? Years can go by without seeing one another but when chatting on the phone or reuniting in person, the years melt away. Every year I catch up with two of my former co-workers and recently we met for lunch. It was as if we were back at the office we shared for nearly 17 years. Even though it’s been a long while since we all worked together, the conversation was instantaneous and nonstop as we picked up where we left off.
My former boss, Stuart loves being Grandpa to his four grandchildren. He brought photos and updated us on their latest musical and sports activities. The oldest, twins are now driving. When we first met 23 years ago, his children were single and are now the parents of teenagers.
Jill and I started at the firm the same month. She was fresh out of law school and a newlywed. Every few years she would come in with a baby stroller, diaper bag and a blonde-haired, darling bundle of joy. Those little ones are now in high school and college. Where does the time go?
It was wonderful to get together and a pleasure to have spent my workdays with these two dear friends, who shared joy in good times and provided comfort in sad times. I’m grateful for their lasting friendship and can’t wait until our next reunion.
