I have had a struggle lately in getting feedback from some of my closest friends. As Life goes, we’re busy. We’re not the kind of busy a 25 year-old with a muffin-sweet rump and bleached teeth is with music and friend’s boats and taking pictures with their hands in the air at clubs; no, we’re actually busy. Kids, careers, families, meds, soccer practices, interviews, upgrades, technology. All of that stuff is taking time away from friendship. And I have single, unmarried, childless friends who still seem to be too busy to pick up a phone and tag me in a Facebook photo. Seriously, the line’s drawn out as far as it can go.
There are some folks who can forever be friends with very little involvement in your life. And some you simply miss the company of, as something that helps you enjoy your life.
