this one’s for the girls

I had dinner tonight with two friends from college that I haven’t seen for a year.

In college, there was a group of about 7 of us that were unusually close.

Unusually close in the way that we regularly showed up some place dressed like each other without even talking about it.

Unusually close in the way that we called ourselves family, but were probably closer to each other than our family in a lot of ways.

Unusually close in the way that we were all in the exact same place in life at the exact same time and really lived life with each other.

Unusually close in a lot of ways, but I’ll stop.

So, I hadn’t seen either of them in a year.

A lot can happen in a year.

One of them has lived the Haiti disaster in a way that the rest of the world will never understand.  One of them had a big year where she questioned a lot of things that she had always felt so sure of and came out on the other side of all of the questions with her feet planted firmly on the ground.

A lot can sure happen in a year.

And we can still pick up right where we left off.
