Sweetener of life...

The last few days, through the technological wonders of Facebook and Google searches, I have reconnected with several old friends. Not that they are all that old, though I guess they are all as old as me, but they were my friends in high school. What a joy this has been! I have a few friends from that time period that I've never lost track of, which is also a great blessing (to me,'ll have to ask them if being my friend for 30+ years has been a blessing to them! I can be tough on my friends...)

So today I am grateful for rediscovering some friends I thought lost. What a delight!

Friendship! mysterious cement of the soul!
Sweetener of life! and solder of society!
