As I stood there with my group of old pals, I realize that time was passing and I was missing out on things - things that were happening with them and sharing the things that were happening with me. Some of them live in town and I don't see them outside of these sorts of occasions.
I am going to resolve to make an effort to communicate with "my people" more often. How about you?
