 “A (person) that hath friends must shew (themselves) friendly: and there is a

 Friend  that sticketh closer than a brother (or sister).” – Proverbs 18.24 (KJV)

 I treasure friendships and important relationships.  A couple weeks ago, thanks to Facebook, I reconnected with a high school friend.  We have not seen each other since graduating from high school.  I played trombone, first chair and he played trombone, second chair.  From the eight through the twelfth grades, we sat and marched next to each other in our high school bands – marching, concert, jazz, and honors.  Although I occasionally thought of him, I did not inquire about him with other friends and he was not present at our last high school reunion a couple years ago.  So, when I saw him responding to a Facebook posting made by my brother, I quickly chimed in and befriended him.  We have enjoyed several conversations with each other since that initial posting.

 The month of July prompted a lot of thoughts running through my mind.  When you are confined to home for a lengthy period of time, you spend a lot of time alone with your thoughts.  During the month of July, I pulled out photo albums and pictures I have collected and stored on jump drives and in various computer files.
