A voice from the past

Are you a good long distance friend? It's one thing to be close to someone you see everyday, or friends in church you interact with weekly. But do you keep in touch with those friends that seem to have drifted out of your life? Heck, I don't even call my sisters who all live in other states, much less anyone from college. I guess that's what Facebook is for! :)
I called up an old and dear friend today. Sarah is those once in a lifetime friends. We met in college and were virtually insperable, the kind that you carry a deep bond with. We never keep in touch anymore. Oh, I know her address and phone number, but our lives are so polar opposite, that just the day to day grind keeps us from staying close.
Funny thing is, 3 seconds in to our conversation, we were laughing and talking at the same time while simultaneously hearing and understanding the other. Some things never change. She is one of those few people, who know me better than I know myself. Loves me unconditionally and when we talk, there are never awkward pauses. We just start up where we left off, even if it has been over a year since we talked.
Those kind of friends, will only happen once or twice in a lifetime. They are precious, yet effortless. If you have a friend like that, give them a call tonight....... it'll make you smile.
