I really value the friendships I have made in college. I think there is a saying that goes “The friends you make in college will stay with you through the rest of your life.” Now I am pretty sure people say that about so many periods in life, not just college, but for me it really applies. My thoughts were wandering the other day and I was thinking about years from now when I get married and which friends I think I will invite. And when it came down to it, I could name quite a few friends I know now that I just feel in my gut I will stay in touch with for years to come.
I think that is such an amazing thing. Sure, people come in and out of life just like seasons and we never know what the next year or even the next month will bring. But as far as my friends go, there are a few who immediately come to mind when I think of the people I truly hope to stay in contact with after graduation. That makes me truly happy.
