Everyone knows there are seasons in life. The few lucky ones have people who remain in their lives for the long haul - all the seasons. Others find friends flutter in and out of your life as the seasons change. Your bar hopping friends fade as you enter into marriage or parenthood.
It’s always a bit sad to lose touch with a friend, but consider they may have only been meant to stay with you for a season or two. And that’s normal. Don’t feel guilty for drifting away from some friends when starting a new season.
There are people you are meant to grow up with and others meant to grow old with. Cherish the time you have with each one and be sure to wish them well.
