I'm in the midst of several impending losses these days. Friends leaving, other friends threatened with cancer, feeling a bit rejected by another friend (probably has to do with how busy this person is, but it still kind of hurts).
Just makes me realize afresh how precious friendships are. They make my life so beautiful, so worth living. And friendships, in this day and age with life at Warp Speed once again, are so difficult maintain--in the sense that it takes work to make time to keep up with friends. Despite my attempts to have lunch with folks and keep up with friendships that way, there are many other people in my life that I haven't seen for months and month. And I miss seeing.
