Don’t get me wrong, maintaining a 42 year friendship is an investment of time and effort. For probably 30 years we wrote letters (you remember those, you put a stamp on ’em and drop them in that blue thing?). Our friendship continued long before the age of the internet and quick, easy text messages.
I’m still a big fan of the old fashioned, hand-written letter.
But today’s convenient and abundant methods of staying in touch are at our finger tips and it makes it easier than ever to continue to cultivate the important relationships in our lives.
The only thing is that you still have to take action to make it happen, or as the old commercial said “reach out and touch someone.”
I’m planning to give Beth a call in the next few days., and I’m sure it will be just like old times.
