Reconnecting, Thanks to Facebook

My wife and I went out to dinner last night with two other couples, one of which we had not seen in probably 20 years. It was a wonderful evening, filled with lots of reminiscing, catching up, and laughter (not to mention good food and wine as well).

I’m not really sure how we had all drifted apart, but I do know what brought us back together – Facebook.

Somehow I started to see some of our old friend’s posts on Facebook, realized we seemed to share a lot of the same beliefs, and we reconnected.

We would like each other’s posts and offer the occasional comment on those posts as well. After a year or so of this, we finally decided it would be fun if we all got together, and so last night it finally happened.

We were at the restaurant for close to two and a half hours, and it felt like we could have sat there for another two and a half hours, but it was just about closing time.

We went our separate ways, but with plans to get together for a game night in the near future.

Who knows if last night would have ever happened without Facebook, so I have to give credit where credit is due. The Facebook platform makes it easy for such reunions to take place, and for that I am grateful.

But I’m even more grateful for having such good friends.
