Old Friends

No, this post isn't about all the "old" ladies I am friends with... It is about all the friends I have had over the years that I lost touch with. I miss them... Some of them I only knew briefly, and they impacted my life greatly, or were part of a life changing event for me... Some of them I spent the entire first 18 years of my life with suddenly to have them vanish after the rite of passage known as graduation.

Thankfully, due largely in part to the Internet, I have been able to reconnect with many of them. Just recently I found Abbey from New York, Casey from Jersey, Rick from Alabama, and Richie from Surfside, SC. All of these people were friends for a very brief time but definitely made an impact on me for some reason or the other.

I recently found a great great friend Amanda. She is living in Birmingham or Mobile... I cannot remember right now. She and I were great friends in high school. Graduation came and she disappeared. Glad to find her again. Maybe I will see her soon!!!

I often wonder though, about the friends I haven't found yet.... Like Stephanie, Kasey, Kyle, Jeff, Cynthia, J.T, Justin.... For some of them it has been almost 15 years since I saw them... Where are they??? What are they doing??? Do they even still remember who I am?? Do they wonder where I am???

I hope so... I hope they are doing well... I hope life is being good to them... I hope they read this, and get in touch!!! Life is too short not to have lots of friends.

I have found SO many on facebook. It seems like when you find one, they link to several others. Just this week I found several I went to 7th grade with. Its very cool to me.

I have been doing the same thing on Facebook and it has been funny and weird all the same time to see where people are at after 20 yrs... Cheaper than a HS

Man, that's the first time I have ever been referred to as "an old lady". *SIGH*
