Friend Time

I get to see my old roommate tomorrow. I started thinking about the last time I saw her, and I think it's somewhere around 18 years! That's far too long. Especially for a good, good friend.

Kim and I were inseparable in college. We lived together, worked at the same places (school cafeteria and Walmart) and shared our lives for three straight years. Those were crazy years, and we did strange and crazy things. Oreos were a particular fascination....for many reasons. We went through the same fads and fazes: (I admit) legwarmers, full length coats, generic wheat thins, Ferris Beuller's Day Off, Girls Just Wanna Have Fun, the Gaither Vocal Band.... all bring up specific memories and events spent with Kim. And the VW. Can't forget the green bug.

We've lived completely different lives post college, but that hasn't kept us from staying in touch. My daughter started college this year. Hers is in pre-K. I've been married for 21 years. She's been married for 5. But there are similarities, too. We both are active in ministry. We both are dedicated moms. We have some similar problems in our lives as well.

So I get to see Kim tomorrow, and I'm sure it's going to be a gabfest. Lots of catching up, laughing, sharing, and getting to know our kids. It's going to be a blast!
