Yesterday my husband, daughter, and I met up with a good friend who lives nearby. We had a wonderful time catching up and sharing a meal together. It reminded me of the many times I have felt so wistful about our grad school days when my husband (then boyfriend) and I were able to hang out with our friends, who are now scattered across the globe. Life was busy, stressful, and we hardly had any money, but we always found a way to escape the grad school grind. I really miss those days and the people we spent them with.
Though not from the same cohort of friends, last night's outing reminded me of those good times, and for that I am grateful. I am also grateful for the great company and the sweet gift given to our daughter after our outing :)
