Old Friends and Dear Friends

A most amazing thing has happened on Facebook. I have found my best friends from grade school! It never ceases to amaze me that one can reconnect with old and dear friends on that social networking web site. I moved away at 14 when my dad was transferred to Minnesota over 30 years ago. It was the summer before ninth grade and we really had no chance to say goodbye. Over the years I have thought of them often and wondered how they were doing. Now I know! I know about their families, marriages and children. One of my friends is living kitty corner from the house that I grew up in and she has promised to take pictures when she has time. I chuckle to see the friends in common between us. I feel blessed to have them back in my life.

I wonder too. There are a couple I would have really liked to find.

I'm so glad you were able to reconnect with your buddies. Friends are such a precious commodity.

I am doing more tweeting than Facebook and not too much of that.

But my wife has really become a fan of Yoville and has renewed friendships with all sorts of people on Facebook.

Thanks Robyn for the note.
