|We are prob 15 here and getting ready for Winter Carnival . I am the one sitting.|
I had heard from a few friends over the years that Miranda was asking about me, wanting to know where I lived, what I was up to, etc. Then one day I get a message on Facebook from her and she is so happy to have found me. I was happy she had too. I had no hard feelings towards Miranda at all. It was just one of those things that happened in life as far as I was concerned. Come to found out at a playdate later, she thought I was mad at her and her boyfriend (who she was no longer with when we reconnected) had told her that I was a bad influence on her so we couldn't be friends. WTF!
Anyways, it's funny how lives can run so parallel...our sons were the same age and were born a few weeks apart, we had the same quirky cell phone, she is a Physical Therapist, I handle public relations at a physical therapy company. I got pregnant with my second child and she did 6 months later. So we have resumed a friendship and have play dates whenever our schedule and kids' health allows it.
Then last weekend, I went to her daughter's first year birthday party. As I drove home I was thinking about the party and how my kids were playing with her kids. Who knew that this was all going to transpire..I am so happy that we are apart of each others lives again and I'm able to share these special moments with her. We may not be the BFFs that we were in high school, but she knows apart of me that no one else will ever know and that makes this unexplainable bond between each other. So to me, I'm still the pea and she is still the carrot.
