Old Friend

I was walking to the Student Union last week to get a Starbucks, when I bumped into on of my friends from Little League and high school. He is teaching a course at my school. It was so good seeing him. We had lunch today. It has been so long since I have seen him. He has done so much with his life. There is so much to catch up and learn about him.

I enjoy seeing old friends in random places. I miss the days of being a kid and making friends on trips to new places and playing like there is no tomorrow. Ah to be a kid again. I guess now the only thing we can do is to strive to maintain our childlike enthusiasm for life and try not to judge people by first impressions. Kids are so great about accepting people. Although kids are honest, they do make friends so easily. I guess they haven't been burnt as much as adults on shady friends.

Just remember to keep your eyes open for the good friends from your past and heart open for the good friends of the future!
