6 years since…

I woke up this morning with the same thing on my mind that many Americans share. I can’t believe it’s been 6 years. I thought about this day and how I was suddenly awoken by my roommate Chris early tha morning. I hadn’t talked to Chris since we graduated, there have been times where I have run into him here and there but they were just check-ins. This morning I sent him and email and he called me back and I have to say it was probably one of the most meaningful conversations I have had with him in a long time.
I don’t know if I emailed him because of Sept 11 or because of the series on friendship we are covering at Nativity. I use to be under the mentality that friends come and go and they were only meant to be there for that time in your life. But with building this series I’ve come to realize that people come into our lives to help us grow and we are in there lives to help them grow.
I don’t know about all of you but it hurts when I think about the friends I’ve lost that connection with…I often wonder about what they are doing, how they are surving and I wish that I could reconnect with them. All of our relationships should develop into accountable and loving friendships. All of our relationships should be aimed at lasting forever.
I’m hoping that after today Chris and I will remain in touch and I’m pretty sure it will. But now a question arises, “Who else do I need to contact today?”
