Old friends

My mother and her sister catching up with an old friend

“One of the greatest titles we can have is ‘old friend’. We never appreciate how important old friends are until we are older. The problem is we need to start our old friendships when we are young. We then have to nurture and grow those friendships over our middle age when a busy life and changing geographies can cause us to neglect those friends. Today is the day to invest in those people we hope will call us 'old friend’ in the years to come.”

– Grant Fairley

    1. Yes... someday the time will come when our kids get to our current age and they will be the ones looking at us 'old people' and hopefully admiring the rich friendships we have developed over the years. I hope they see something good!

    1. Yes indeed, old friend!
      Mum's face was really lighted up at that awesome catch up session. Something about old friends that brings this side out in anyone. Better than a facelift. Hope when the time comes when we need one, we'll have a chance to see each other face-to-face and give each other that 'lift'!

And so Nathan’s very first day of kindergarten is over. It was a mixture of good, bad, sweet and sour. I think that so much happens throughout the day, it can be challenging for a little person to filter through it all.
