Friends of Generations

During my stay at home I’ve gone along with my mother to visit with some of her friends and update them on everything I’m doing. One of my mom’s great gifts is to have friends of all ages, from being a Godmother to playing the piano once a month at the local nursing home.
Perspectives change drastically between generations as the body and mind gets old. Having those friends from different generations can definitely help one’s own perspective in how they see life.
I only have a few thoughts on it for now, but I can see the importance of having all sorts of friends. The last five years of my life were great at MSU. To be surrounded by forty thousand people my age in their late teens and early twenties is a pretty wild time. As this trip develops I’m looking forward to finding those friendships of different generations. There is a lot to learn and admire in a conversation when there is sixty years of age between two people, and it goes in both directions. -xo
