It’s been nearly six months since I left my job and over that time I have missed my coworkers a great deal, especially my closest friend, Gail. I had imagined myself visiting my old office much more frequently, grabbing lunch with people and catching up with their lives. But with my father being ill, it just wasn’t possible. This week I was invited to the office holiday party and I was so excited that I got the chance to go.
Having worked there for the better part of a decade, it seemed like such a natural fit to slip back into old friendships and conversations, and of course the best part was being with Gail. I love friendships that don’t age and just pick up right where they left off. Granted, we still text each other all the time, but it was great to meet up face to face. I’m so thankful for her friendship.
All in all the afternoon was wonderful, which was great because it made the three hour drive home bearable! (I may miss the people and the work, but I will NEVER miss the rush hour!)
