Yesterday was a great day! Another piece of my life that I lost 4 years ago has been put back in place!
Four years ago I lost everything, including losing touch with some very dear friends. My life was a shambles emotionally, spiritually and financially. I have been in the process of rebuilding my life and it has really been a slow and sometimes dissappointing process. I have had to compromise on many things, one of which is I most likely will never have the high paying job I had before. That may be a good thing. I am learning to live with less and learning to appreciate other things like friends and family.
Yesterday I found an old friend I have spent the last year looking for. This is the second old friend I have found, the first one being Denise. Denise was easy, I just googled her name and she popped right up. I am sooooo happy I found Denise! She is one of a kind and just a really fantastic person. A really good friend. I couldnt imagine not having her for a friend.
The friend I found yesterday is Mandy. I have known her for years and met her at a previous job. She moved away to Texas but we never lost touch and visited each other at least once a year. She is very funny, caring and you never know what she is going to do next, but you are never surprised. I just love her and she loves me unconditionally. I know she does me. We have both went through a lot together. Her family is fantastic too.
I tried Google and didnt have any luck. I was looking for her in Texas. I figured she was still there. After all her family is there. Yesterday I tried again without much hope that I would get any results and she popped right up! I was so excited! After a couple of messages she called me and she is living RIGHT DOWN THE ROAD about 25 miles! And 25 miles around her is considered a long walk! Whoooo hooo!
We talked a good bit and we plan to meet up Monday afternoon. Her first words to me was she thought I had DIED. Im so sorry she thought that. God knows there were times I had wished I was dead. But it aint my time to go yet people!
So another piece of the puzzle from my former life is back in place. I think the good thing about my puzzle is I can replace the good pieces and throw the bad ones away. I can find better pieces to replace the bad ones. It is taking a long time to start over this time. (Yes, I have had to start over before.) I really hope I dont have to do it again. Im getting to old for this shit. I want to put my puzzle together with glue so it doesnt fall apart ever again.
