Today I was reflecting on all the people who said they were my friend. Granted, these were co-worker friends. At the time it seemed that we connected on a level that went beyond work. We'd chat about family, puppies and home disasters (you know, the ones where your kid leaves water running and soon its trickling down the stairs or when you let hubby cook in the kitchen and you remember why the kitchen is your domain!!)
As soon as we weren't on the same team or no longer assigned to the same office, the connection was gone and the friendship was lost like so many ashes from a campfire that was no longer needed.
I do treasure the two (2) work friends that I've been able to hold onto. I'd just like to know what happened to the others? I have made attempts to keep in touch...but, unanswered e-mails speak as loudly as words. They seem to say, "I have no use for you" or "we no longer have anything in common".
It feels kind of sad.
With this thought, though, I will be letting the friends who stayed know just how much I value their friendship!!
