A very dear friend of mine, my best friend who I have not seen or heard from in 20 years got in contact with me a few nights ago (Monday night)!! Talk about a flood of memories coming back ~ the last summer we spent together (Summer of '85) we were inseperable, shared our deepest, most innermost thoughts and feelings with one another, our fears, our hopes and our dreams. It is a rarity to have someone in your life that you have such a deep connection with that even after 20 years you still connect!! We have taking a stroll down memory lane, we have laughed, cried and laughed some more...oh so many memories! Why did we not stay intouch with each other? Our bond as friend would have only gotten stronger over the years if we would have, my love for him has never ceased to exist, it has always been there. He was afraid that I wouldn't accept him and his choice in his sexual preference ~ he didn't give me enough credit as a friend! Unbeknownst(?) to him, I knew that he was gay 20 years ago or atleast I knew he was struggling with it ~ he underestimated our friendship!
The moral of this entry is that no matter what goes on in our lives: LOVE, LAUGH OFTEN, FORGIVE, AND DON'T JUDGE AND HOLD ONTO THOSE MEMORIES THAT MAKE YOU HAPPY!! The Summer of '85 was the best summer of my life as a teenager.
Our song was "You've got a friend" by Carol King ~ I haven't heard that song in 20 years ~ it was on the radio the other night. =) God works in mysterious ways!!
