This is so strange that ,this is today's journal. I had/ have a best friend from when I was 14 to 19. We did everything together. We were closer than sisters. Well I meet my husband,( I didn't know it at the time) she got jealous, we had a fight, and didn't really talk for almost 18 years. I would always hear about her from time to time. People would always ask me"What ever happened to..." Finished school, got married,had 4 children, moved to a different neighborhood. She ,got married twice and divorced twice, no kids, stayed in the same place we grew up. We "found" each other again, about a month ago, and it's like time stood still.Does she know me best? I don't know, but she knows me in ways that my husband, children or even friends I have had for years, will never know and I could never explain. I really believe people are in your life for a reason and each and everyone good or bad, has a purpose.  I'm so glad she's back!:)

that's great that u found each other again.

I had a similair thing happen to me about a yr ago- i was best friends with her from when i was 18-23.  we had a stupid fight (she was jealous that I started hanging out with my now husband), then she moved to California for college-last yr she called me & told me she moved back to long island,she's married & has 2 lil girls, and we have been close since last yr.  We had sooo many good tmemories when we were younger, and now we're making NEW memories with our families together!

That is bizarre.  I'm glad you two have found each other again.  There's something about childhood friends. Hard to explain but I do know what you are talking about.   I have a friend who I lost touch with after freshman year in hs.  My Mom runs into her Mom at church every once in awhile so I get mini updates on her.  I heard she just had her 6th baby.  I'm so happy for her because I always wanted a big family!     I need to look her up,,, not that she'd have time to chat,, with 6 kids and all. LOL
