Keeping in Touch

Considering the idea that nothing lasts forever: what was the most important relationship that you fostered in 2012? 

How will you continue to nurture it in 2013? Reverb12 prompt#8

Trying to narrow it down and do it justice was impossible.  So I have to say my relationship with relationships was most important.  I mean, what is more important?  My kids?  My doctors?  My friends?  The ones who stood by me, or the ones who turned their backs?  My family?  When they drove me crazy, or when they dropped everything to sit with me and clean my house?  My imaginary friends?  The ones I only know through facebook, blogs, texting?  Yes.  All of them.

People are important, the other stuff?  Really doesn’t matter.

I intend to call more, write more, comment more, visit more, be present more.

    Keeping in touch is always good, especially through a difficult time, like you’ve been going through. Those that turned their back on you? No cool. However, during normal times, what I cherish most about true friends is the ability to go weeks or months without talking, and then connecting like we’d just seen each other the day before when we do get together.

  3. This morning, before I read your post I decided that I’d write more letters as a way of maintaining my friendships. I’ve lapsed into laziness and miss writing letters. Plus, I miss my friends.
