Old Friends

Wednesday, May 14, 2008
I am out of town for a couple days and had the chance to spend this morning in a Bob Evans (NOT my choice!) with a great friend named Jim. Jim and I known each other for nearly twenty years, have worked together, and have cowritten a book together.

I only get to see him a few times a year, but every time I do - whether at a mentoring group in Charlotte, a writing and crab cake sandwich session on the Chesapeake Bay, or over breakfast in some stinkin' Bob Evans- I am reminded of how important relationships which are real and extend through the years are in my life.

I am absolutely an introvert and my default mode is to think I don't need people. Not so much to think that, because I know better, but sometimes to live that way. It is true that we introverts need and want less social interaction than our extroverted friends, but that does not mean we need people less...especially people who know us and have traveled some terrain in our company.

Grateful for Jim today.
