You know, life is full of changes. Things come and things go. People come into your life and people leave your life. Nothing stays the same, things always change. But once in a while one of those changes brings something back into your life that you honestly thought was gone forever, and this is an example of that.

Anyone who knows me knows that my life has never been easy and a few years ago my entire family's lives were put into a complete uproar, partially our fault and partially of no fault of our own. During that time I lost many "things" that had been in my life, but it wasn't losing those "things" that bothered me, it was losing the people that hurt the most. I tried to keep in contact with some of them, others I totally lost contact with, and in the end even the ones I tried to keep in contact with kind of drifted away. That's the thing about life, during your most difficult times you learn who are and who aren't your TRUE friends. It was one such true friend that I lost contact with, who I thought I had lost forever.

Then, a couple of months ago, something came across the local news and in the story they showed the back of a persons head. I KNEW THAT HEAD! And when the voice belonging to that head was heard, I was 100% positive!! It took me less than 24 hours to find the person connected to that voice and over the past few months we have emailed and called each other often.


Today we met in person! There is not a word in my vocabulary to describe how I feel inside right now. It was without a doubt the best day I have had in such a very long time. Just to be able to sit with someone who knows so much about you yet still loves you, WITHOUT it being a family member....LOL! She introduced me to a wonderful drink called Chai Tea.....lemme tell you, this stuff is AWESOME!

Lisa, I LOVE YOU! I am so blessed to have you back in my life!

You know reading that made me cry. I'd have a hard time describing how today made me feel too, cept maybe to say I felt like I was home.

Today flew by but it was great being able to see you and I'm looking forward to our future and very glad that the back of my head is soooo recognizable (lol). Not to mention knowing that the both of us will never run out of things to talk about. You were right when you said we are both blessed, not many people have the chance to have a friend that loves them for exactly who they are.

Goes without saying but...I love you too!
