I am blessed to have many friends and a large family. Unfortunately I live very far away from many of them. With the communications the Internet enables, it is easy than ever to stay in touch. Still, it isn’t the same as seeing someone in person. There are a number of things that always make me think of family and friends. Daisies for example. Daisies remind me of a good friend from college. We don’t see each other often, but whenever I see a daisy I think of her. It’s nice to have little reminder like that. It’s also a reminder to reach out to your friends and family, even if it is just a quick hello. That is at least how I treat these reminders.
