"Not all who wander are lost" ... but some are dangerously close
There is one other thing about a true friendship that I find particularly encouraging today as I wander back. This one, and perhaps most important, defining of true friendship is the ability to come back together at random times, sometimes far more distant than either one cares for, and be able to immediately be back in sync like no time had passed at all. That is my prayer for this new year and this new post. I'm longing to return to the company of this old friend.
These past few months have been some of the most difficult since our relationship began, and like any true introvert, it seems as if I chose to pull away. It's not that I didn't think about it. I often did... and if I wasn't thinking about it I often had others who were reminding me and encouraging me to return. It's quite possible that our continued conversation may have provided some light along an often seemingly darkened path. I guess I will really never know.
What I do know is this, that when I was ready, like a true cherished friend, this space was right here where I left it and we can begin again, right where we left off ... wandering the road together.
