This week we did something we rarely do on date night; we met some friends for dinner. However, these friends weren’t friends we see everyday because they live 2 hours away from us.
We miss them dearly. We used to be neighbors, but they moved about 8 years ago – still hard to believe. Yet our hearts are still connected to them like family. It doesn’t matter how much time passes when we’re apart, once we’re together we pick right up where we left off. Amazing!
We decided it was time to have a double date and meet each other halfway, which happened to be in the little town of Bellview, FL. We found a Sonny’s BBQ and enjoyed talking, laughing and reminiscing. It was a perfect night which we didn’t want to end. If it weren’t for Sonny’s closing their doors, we might still be there talking. We had such a good time, we’ve decided to make this a regular date every couple of months. An added bonus was Tom and I had an hour each way to talk while driving.
Do you have lifelong friends you miss? Why not make your own plans to spend an evening together, even if it’s only by phone. There’s no friend like an old friend!
