Most often people think of, “I love you.”

Equally important, between friends, is “I remember you.” 

Every day I weave at least one friend in to my experience by telling them how I’ve been reminded of them or something that has happened that made me think of them.

“I remember you,” has so much meaning stacked up behind it.  Yes, we’re fully occupied.  Yes, there are lots of “to do’s” on our daily lists.  In the midst of so much pressing priority, friends get to come first in line, not last.  My dad made that point to me in his old age.  He understood and told me that he would have worked less and spent more time with his friends and family.

There’s wisdom in that.  Thank you for reading, “I remember you.”
