The setting, the company, the love, the joy. No words needed.
I’ve written many posts about these special friendships. The most recent was my-friend-my-sister.
There was an unstated yet conscious urgency to our gathering that had little to do with Covid. The pandemic meant that it had been too long. But, and it’s a huge but, health is the underlying current. As we age “issues” crop up; substantial things like cancer and heart disease. It makes every occasion a special one as we continue to celebrate friendships that began at the same time as our nursing careers, some 4 1/2 decades ago.
