Last night I attended my 20th high school reunion! It was such a trip to see so many old friends in the same place. I thought the reunion might be somewhat anti-climactic since we all keep up with each other on Facebook, but it wasn’t at all. And even though I text and email and talk to a lot of my old friends regularly, there’s nothing like being able to hug someone you’ve known since you were five years old.

There’s also nothing like staying out until midnight to remind you that you’re not 18 anymore. I’m STRUGGLING this morning, LOL.

Paying It Forward
