My World

Reason, Season, Lifetime

Seeing some of my friends updating their blogs reminded me it has been a while since I wrote something here.

No excuses, just a new entry.

A really good friend of mine moved away last week. She moved to Florida. The obligatory "well, now you've got a great place to vacation" did not help. Maybe that's because I know how I am. Sure, I keep in touch for a while, but then I get so caught up in my new life without that person that they go to the back burner.

The only saving grace that I have with regard to this horrible habit is that with electronic technology, it's way easier to stay in touch. Now I've got Facebook and e-mail, where before I had to get paper and physically write a letter. Trust me, it helps. I've been able to reconnect with people I never thought I'd find again.

(I've also been able to reconnect with extended family, who have been incredibly forgiving about my withdrawing after my mom died.)

Years ago, I heard a saying that friends enter your lives for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. Even if I'm awful at staying in touch, know that you're in my heart forever, even if you were part of my life for a short time.
