Oh man, what a weekend! After a few major life changes, my best friend (I’ll just call her T) has moved from Saskatchewan up to the Yukon Territory. She left a month ago, but was back this weekend to handle a few things.
Obviously the two of us met up with our other friend (who shall be called S), and good times were had by all. S lives about an hour away from the city, so unfortunately I don’t see her that often.
I think the signs of a true friendship is when you can be apart for so long, yet pick right back up where you left off when you’re finally reunited. Although T has only been gone a month, it feels like forever when you were pretty much joined at the hip. Thankfully, she’ll be back in about 10 days to deal with the last of her things here, but then it’s goodbye until….I don’t know when. S and I are hoping to make it up there in the summer, but dealing with life, and work, and kids…that can make things difficult.
Throughout our lives, people come, and people go. The friends you made in high school sometimes drift away, as your lives change so drastically. In our early adulthood, we are trying to figure out who we are, and that means that again, friends come and go. I know, however, that no matter the distance, no matter the length of time away, there will be people who will be with you through thick and thin.
