Day 601...Year 2

Many years ago in a town far far away, called Fenton... When my BFF would take me home after a night out or stopping by on his way home from work, we would sit in his car and chat about anything and everything.... Laughing and joking, sometimes even crying, those times just seem so far away...

Tonight we revisited those good old days when I dropped him off after an afternoon and evening of shopping and dinner and yummy dessert... Normally we say our good nights and he heads in for the evening... Tonight, I threw the car in park and turn off the engine and we sat and talked... There was some laughter and may have been a few tears but it brought back the memories from all of those years so long ago...

I think the older we get, we get so wrapped up in the day to day world, that we forget about the things that made our relationships so strong... We are always trying to think of things that we can go and do, when sometimes just sitting and talking or going for a late night walk just might be the right clue...

These things help us reconnect and take the focus off of the electronic age and the gotta be entertained all of the time and puts it back where it belongs... On the friendship... It reminds us to stop what we are doing and just listen to what the other person is saying... To share things that normally get forgotten... It gives us back those quiet moments where we are hearing with not only our ears but hearts as well...
