Miracles Do Happen




 OK, my bloggy buddies you are NEVER going to believe this post!!!!


           So if you read my last post you know that I posted about a woman who uses a typewriter to create her art. If you read that post you also know that I wrote about a childhood friend that I so wanted to contact again.
                                

She was my best friend when I was in Middle School...what I didn't tell you all is that we also had the very same birthday. Every year I would think of her, but try as I might I could not locate her in cyber space. 




Friends made when you are young stay in your heart forever.
                              









                                I wrote how creative she was. I wrote about how she loved music and writing.


And we got in trouble together too...usually it was my fault.













                     
I was the Laverne to her Shirley













                                                  
           We imagined what life would be when we got older












                              


and we laughed, boy did we LAUGH!!!
       
                    source  










            

What I didn't write was how much I missed her throughout the years...




                     
            



                                            
As soon as I posted that post to my blog I decided to try one more time to look for her. 



           "Maybe this time." I said to myself






I typed her name


  


                and up popped a picture.






I thought...hmmmm maybe.





 I mean the last time I saw her we were both 13 years old.






    Then another picture popped up of the same woman and in this one she was smiling.


              "Oh my goodness she has L's smile!"

                 Could it be?

                    an e-mail appeared and I took a chance.

                         and with a click It went off to find a woman that could be my long lost friend.





The next day I received an e-mail.


          It






                       was







                                    MY 




  



                  Childhood friend!!!!!!!!!!







I found her I found her!!!! after all this time and all these years I found her!!!!!!


and the best part is that she was so happy to hear from me!


      and guess what?


           she is a writer!


We have spent the last 6 days e-mailing back and forth. We are trying to fill in all those years 


She sent me pictures of herself and I see my friend, I see that angelic 13 year old girl who dreamt big and laughed so much. As I read her e-mails I could almost hear her voice. As I read about her life I struggle not to cry as I read about the loss of her Dad and know exactly what she was feeling because I lost my Dad too.




We both had moms that drove us crazy.




Every night I write a bit more and every morning she sends me her version.

Right now I am up to the part where I get married

We have to fill up 37 years worth of memories and as I write I relive them


and as I write, I wait to read about her life.






Miracles do happen people...Just ask my My Childhood Friend...she'll tell ya!
