Happy Pink Saturday Ladies, and Happy Mothers Day!! It has been a wonderful week for reconnecting with family and friends.
Then Junior High, had alot of new friends, more of a gang of friends now, but one stood out more than the rest, Lori. We did everything together, just like Beth and I use to do. Talked about everything, EVERYTHING. Did everything together, BEST FRIENDS. I cant even remember everything we did, but I would say that she had the biggest impact in my life. High School came along , cool, Im not going to loose my friends, My best friend was going to the same school. Into the year, she told me that her family was moving,,Oh wow, that was like a ton of bricks hitting me, Im going to loose my BEST Friend, the friend that we told secrets too, shared our stories, talked on the phone for hours, went everywhere together. Now what !!
She moved away, we kept in touch for a while she came to see me, a few letters were exchanged and then POOF she was gone. What happened to my BEST FRIEND?! I had many other friends but not that special one, Then along came Wendi, she was the other friend from Elementary School. She was another one of those friends that I lost due to school boundaries , we lived on opposite sides of the line, but when we all went to High School, the boundaries changed and we all ended up in the same High School, Except Beth, she had moved and was out of those boundaries still. :(
Many years have passed and I always wonder how the other 4 of my Best friends are . I found Beth a couple years ago on My Space, we have stayed connected since, Wendi has always been around, I always have known where she is, special moments in her life, I know about, we have connected and will always stay connected. Kris, well I know where she is, but the connection is weak, Im sad about that, but she must have her reasons, but she will always be in my heart. Lori, now she is one of those Best Friends that had the BIGGEST impact on my life, other than my Hubby. I have been looking for her for 30 years, I know , 30 years, How can that be if she was such a good friend. Well, we all grow apart in some way, and find our own paths, life gets busy. I honestly have been looking for her for many years, computers are great for researching and finding people, but I could never find anything. Then something wonderful happened..The wonders of FACEBOOK..She found me! I cant tell you how I felt when I saw her invite pop up in my email. There are no words to describe it. I just started to cry, thats all I could do, My best friend found me. What a wonderful Feeling..PRICELESS!!
We spent hours chatting, and Im sure there will be many more hours spent , talking about our lives. I know I am truely Blessed to have had these people in my life, and now to keep them all there, Im not going to let any of them POOF!! ever again. Thank you for being who you are, and inspiring me throughout my life!
Beth, Lori, Wendi, Kris and my Hubby, You are and will always be part of my heart.
LOVE YOU!! :)
