How time marches on.
Thanks to modern technology and the invention of Facebook, I was able to get reconnected with a cousin that I had not seen in YEARS. I am thinking like 20+ years. How sad is that? as valuable as family is, and how quickly the days go by.
I always knew she was about 60 miles from my home. I always asked about her when I ran into other family members.
But did I ever pick up the phone and give her a call? no.
Until Facebook came about. I just happened to see her on another family members Facebook page….and the connection was rekindled.
It feels like I have not missed a day of her life now. It came naturally to pick up where we left off so many years ago.
My sisters and I made a “Sisters day plus Lana” yesterday. Went to Des Moines, and everyone had the BEST time.
Shopping, eating and visiting. And the shopping took place in the most quaint little areas of the city. We shopped from the really EXPENSIVE boutiques, and later in the day in the cheapest nearly thrift store shops. There were some Christmas gifts purchased, but I think everyone came home with something “fun” for themselves as well. How can you NOT enjoy a day like that!!
Thanks to Lana and all my sisters for making a very unexpected day so very enjoyable. I want to make a date to do it again !! and until then, I am in contact with Lana on a daily basis thanks to Facebook.
Life is good.
