I was reminded again on Saturday night the great joy that comes from long lasting friendships.
The family and I enjoyed a meal and some fun with our friends in Bloomington. After eating, the boys all went to the elementary school park to play baseball and get dirty in the rocks while the ladies chatted away and cleaned up the dinner. Then we all re-congregated for a dance party with the kids in the living room.
Whenever we leave we all acknowledge that we don't get together enough. On one hand it's sad, but it may be what keeps our times together so sweet.
