From a very small town where everyone knew each other. 13 in my graduating class with 11 of us still living. We keep in touch through Facebook and email.

No, too much moving during my growing up years. And then I moved to Guam in 1964.

We moved across the country at Christmas of my sixth grade. We went back to visit the following Christmas and I was able to get together with my former classmates. By that time we were all in Jr High, and I discovered that we were all different now. That is when I learned "you can't go home again".
When I went off to college only one of my classmates went to the same school. We kept in touch during our freshman year, but went our own ways after that. I went to my 50th HS reunion a couple of years ago and we had a great time catching up, but very few of us had kept in touch over the years.

So - No, I haven't kept in touch with childhood friends.

It is over 50 years since I lived in my home state and over 60 since I lived in my childhood hometown. I am in touch with 2 friends with whom I attended elementary school and 1 high school friend. That makes me kind of sad but I have many friends in my life.

I guess I wasn't a very good correspondent and long distance calls were so expensive. We all just grew apart. It was a very different world back then.

How many of you are in touch with at least one childhood friend?

Trust in the Lord with all your heart lean not on your own understanding.In all your ways acknowledge HIM and HE will direct your path.
