A walk along the seawall this morning with a friend of forty years. Time to catch up on each other's lives. A daily occurrence in junior high. Less frequent during college and university life. As young wives and working mothers, a couple of times a year. More often now. Our life philosophies may be different, daily routines unalike, and our neighbourhoods further apart. It is the similarities however, that have kept us connected. Married over thirty years. Mothering three children. Navigating family dynamics. We both know what is involved. The two of us valuing this relationship and making the effort to stay in touch a few times a year, every year. Lasting friendships. Priceless.
