I was looking through Facebook. Actually let me rephrase that to stalking 😛 looking for people who I have known in my life. I thought may be seeing it is a such a popular social network I would be able to find friends that I had lost touch with.
To my dismay I only found 2 people 😦
Where did these people that I knew in my younger years go? Gee I just made myself sound so old, didn’t I? Well, if I was to say that I am reminiscing back 12 to 15 years ago then it really does sound like a looong time ago 🙂
I was the type of person who only had handful of really close friends but I would gather a lot of acquaintances. Actually I am still a lot like that today. I have two close friends who have been in my life since I was 2 and 5 years old. We have and our ups and downs, in and outs but at the end of the day we are still there for each other. You could even say it is more like a “sisterly” love. Then there are the friendships I have formed with people who I have only known for a few years but I felt like I have no them for a life-time, and vice versa.
As I sit here thinking of the people who have walked in to my life at lightening speed and left just as quick, I wonder where they are, what they are doing and how there lives have ended up??? We could go even deeper and question why did they come in to our lives and then leave? What was the reason for them being a friend for such a short time? What was I to learn?
I do know they each and every one of them has a special place in my heart and I thank them for the memories!
