Wonderful things can happen when you rekindle an old friendship - Dr. Joe - 06.01.18

Dr. Joe Hooper | Spiritual Director

Wonderful things can happen when you rekindle an old friendship. I had a unique opportunity Thursday night to go out to dinner with someone I hadn’t seen in years. Our kids grew up together when they were probably four, five or six years old. I didn’t realize how much I had forgotten. How many things I had just shelled, categorized and put into a memory bank, but never really recounted them. And they were some really great, amazing experiences that she remembered and I’m so glad she did. Sometimes it’s good to catch up with old friends to allow ourselves to rekindle those relationships that somehow we have a past. When we do that, it allows us to experience some of the very great things that we had to offer one another decades ago. Literally 15-20 years ago. Do that today. Reconnect with someone.

Take your best to reconnect and rekindle some of those old ideas and old memories that you had of each other. There were some wonderful times that we’ve had and we just forgot about them. Reliving them just made me feel all connected again and reminded me that life is good and it was good. It continues to be good. Have a great Friday. We’ll talk to you tomorrow.
