old friends

Thank you so much for those of you who comment on my blog. I love that.

I was going through the mail this evening and low and behold, I had a letter from a friend I haven't seen since I was 18 years old! I had come across her parents address in my old address book when I did Christmas letters and decided to send her one and just hope she got it. She did! I was so happy beacuse she is from Norway and still lives there. At least for all I knew she did. She was a foreign exchange student at my high school. She sent a picture of her and her family of 3 kids and husband! She looks the same! still skinny even! How do people do that after having kids?

Anyway, it just goes to show that when you get an impression to make contact with someone, even though you have no idea where they are, follow it! It has made my day and probably made hers too. I don't believe in accidence or coincidences. I think all things have a purpose and a reason and I really feel there is some reason why after all this time, I needed to write to her when I could have been doing it all along. Time just got away from me. i have so many old friends I would love to hear from that I have lost track of. It makes me wonder why people float in and out of our lives and just the right time. Amazing. Have a wonderful day!

I TOTALLY agree!! I have a set of close friends that is constantly in motion...Sometimes I find myself connecting with one, and then finding myself needing the spirit of another for whatever reason. Just like "seasons" in your life, I believe that there are "seasons" to certain friendships...But then, it is so wonderful to find that 1 or 2 people that you have as a constant in your life...I think it's great that you were able to re-connect with your friend! Who knows...maybe it is a start to a great, new "season" for you both!
