It felt great to connect and catch up. Perhaps due to the time limit we made the most use of the time. For instance, instead of me waiting in line by myself, he waited with me so we could talk. Instead of me walking the 5 minutes to my car by myself, he walked with me and I gave him a ride back to his car, milking as much time as possible. Time with my friend helps me to keep things in perspective, makes life more enjoyable and offers much needed support. Friends make life much happier.
