Someone From the Past

Today my phone rings and I look at the caller ID. I think to myself - hmmm...I sure hope nothing is wrong. The number looked familiar but I just couldn't figure it out. Then I heard the voice...BECKY! My gosh! And just how many years has it been since I have seen my bestest of the bestest friends from my younger years? Let's just say that it has been a bunch! I was really surprised and thankful. Sometime back we parted ways to run off and discover the world. Yeah right! We parted ways because our ways became different. We parted ways because we got on with life. Regardless of why we parted ways, it happens. Sometimes it's sad when friends part and sometimes it is really what is needed. But no matter how far away or how many years, friends always somehow, someway, find each other again.

Becky has been living back home now since February. I know - she coulda called me before now. But you know what? We all were busy living. Friends understand that. We marry, have kids, have grandkids, get jobs, start a home, divorce - or whatever we do. Life happens!

We caught up really quick on the phone and agreed to get together next week. I really am looking forward to seeing her again! She ask me all about our boys and how wonderfully proud she is of what Superman and I are doing. Of course she ask me if I was happy, that is always a concern between friends. And the older we get the more it means.

I will let you know how our rendezvous of many years goes!

Its always nice to catch up with our old friends. True friends are always there for us no matter how long its been. I have a few like this and love them to bits. Like you said, we have to get on with life but its nice to know our real friends are still out there. Isnt it?
