i have returned from a wonderful trip to washington d.c.
it's a great relief to be back.
yes, i thorougly enjoyed my vacation.
yes, i thorougly enjoyed being a tourist.
yes, i thoroughly enjoy spending time with tina.
but i belong in a small town and it feels so good to be home.
and it especially feels wonderful to be back at work.
i know i'll be asked what my favorite part of the trip was,
and i'm sure i will have different answers.
but there's one thing that i will remember most:
the fact that friendships can pick up where they left off.
it doesn't matter how often you talk or don't talk to each other,
or how often you see or don't see each other,
you still pick up where you left off from the last time you were together.
i'm thankful for friendships like this.
and i anticipate many more vacations and get-togethers will friends
when we'll be able to pick up where we left off,
as if time were non-existant.
