Number 6 of My New Years Resolutions for 2010 was to make an effort to see friends that I haven't seen in a long time. I did make a valiant effort to accomplish this but there are still friends out there that I haven't seen in forever. I realized this last night as I compiled addresses for my upcoming wedding shower.
It made me very, very sad.
I have friends who I haven't seen in 2+ years. I have friends that have had babies that I've never met. I have friends that I used to spend day in and day out with that have new homes I've never stepped foot in. I have friends that I had some of the best times of my life with. Friends that I lived with. Friends that I miss dearly.
How is it possible to balance it all? How is it possible to work and run errands and take care of the animals and yourself and STILL be able to find the time to fit in all the important friends and family members?
I suppose that making the effort is just that - making the effort. You just have to pencil it in and make it happen. I'm thinking that life is too short to NOT make it happen.
So to all my friends past and present that I haven't seen or spoken to - I think of you often, and I think of you fondly.
Most importantly, I'm missing you.
