Long lost friends

Heard from two friends that I hadn't heard from in a long time. Had mixed reactions. One good, one eh.

One has been a strained relationship, and I had just about given up. It gets frustrating when only one person tries to keep the friendship alive. Calls and letters that aren't returned for weeks. But you keep doing it because you know the person is struggling and seems lost. That was the first. Very strained conversation on the phone. And I could almost hear the walls go up. We were best friends at one time. And I do understand that life pulls us in different directions. Still tough to make sense of it all. It was nice to hear from her, though, even if the conversation left me confused and concerned. So maybe there's hope.

The other was a card from a buddy I went to school with. We're not constantly in touch (he lives on the east coast). But we talk on the phone a few times a year, and manage to get together once a year with classmates. Anyway, great to hear from him out of the blue, and at a time I needed it.

I love getting reaquainted with old friends. As a matter of a fact, last night I met up with a friend who I have not seen in over a year. Tonight, she and I are going to meet up with another long lost friend.

Sorry about your strained friendship. I hope all works out well with that. I know how caring you are about your friends, it's gotta be tough.
