Having friends in your age group

How important is having friends in your age group or age range? I find myself really enjoying those friends closest to my own age.  We can commiserate on the woes of grown children and our own aging parents. We can reminisce on days in high school and still remember the antics of our classmates.

Last night I shared in evening with 13 former co-workers – who all worked side by side with me



roughly from 1977 to 1997. It was a glorious reunion and we laughed and shared stories. Two of the women in the group were my original bridesmaids from 1981.

What we are share is a common bond, a thread that links us together through working crazy hours, holidays, weekends and some grad nights side by side.
