The Class of 1970 had its dreams
We are all now approaching sixty much faster than we want to admit. We all realized that waiting five or ten years to have another reunion is just too long. So we have had a couple of mini reunions since that have proved to be even more fun and more meaningful than the big party last October.
A group of us got together this evening at our classmates Laura's home for a pot luck dinner, some beer and wine and lots of conversation. We talked about husband and wives, ex's, children, grandchildren, teachers, parents who are getting older and frail, the events of 9/11, retirement, and jobs. Its been wonderful to reconnect and look at the roads we all have taken and been amazed at how those roads have kind of brought us back together.
The class of 70 had its dreams. Today we have our realities. But there is a bond of love and friendship now that many of us had thought we left behind back when we moved that tassel on our graduation caps so many years ago. I am so thankful for these friends today. We are comfort for each other now when many of us need it the most
I love you guys.
