About a year ago on Tally we had a challenge to scrapbook a layout using the phrase, "She just had this way of brightening the day." Instantly it made me think of my child hood best friend, Melanie. We lost touch after her dad moved them to Georgia. I've thought about Melanie and her dad a lot over the last 15 years, and how I missed them both.
While I was chatting with Melissa yesterday, I mentioned something about Melanie. She asked me a few questions and she was off on a search to find Mel for me. I don't know HOW quick she found Melanie, but she DID! By 3:45 yesterday, I was chatting it up with my best friend. We stayed on the phone for hours. I could almost cry thinking about it now. A*MAZ*ing. It's one of the best gifts I've ever been given. So, a big shout out to Melissa for finding Melanie & her dad for me.... you are one helluva good friend, Melissa, and I'll always treasure this gift you've given me. I'm pretty sure the Smurf glasses are insufficient now. ;o)
I know now it's true.. it's never too late to find someone and establish contact.
