Friend Found

For several years I've posted a Christmas story about a friend who blessed my family on a lonely Christmas Eve. If you want to read the story you can find it here.

Over the years I lost touch with my friend, Linda. Though I searched diligently, I just couldn't seem to make a connection. Then this year on Christmas Eve, I typed her name in on Facebook. Boy was I shocked when I realized I was looking at my friend!

It took a few more days to make that solid connection. Last Friday I called her and we had a long conversation on the telephone. Wow. In a lot of ways, it was as though we talked just the week before. Funny how that happens sometimes, isn't it?

So this Christmas I celebrated a friend lost--and found.



  1. How awesome! It's always great to reconnect.

  2. Don't know which friend you "lost" but darlin', I can't imagine not lovin' you forever. :)

    Happy news on the friend find.

  3. very, very cool!

    BTW, I've found a few missing friends on facebook, too. Nice when the technology actually brings you closer to people, instead of further away.

  4. I had a similar thing happen. My oldest was on facebook a few months ago a got a message asking if she was the daughter of... turns out it was my BF from high school. We've been in touch several times since then but have yet to reach anything close to the friendship we used to share. Back then it was school and us. Now we both have families and careers that need to come first. Hope your reunion works out.

    Oh, and love that picture. Can't imagine how the became friends.
