I am really lucky that I have friends and family that made the extra effort to keep in touch with me, while I’ve been so far away. A lot of times I wonder if some of my friendships have faded as a result of the “out of sight, out of mine” idiom, but this year has made me realize which friends I will truly have for life. And that really helps take some of the sting out of missing them. Even though we may be thousands of miles apart, I know that they are there for me if I ever need them. And I hope they know that I will always be there for them.
Sorry if I left anyone out of the pictures, I don’t have good friendship pictures of everyone!
