In what seemed like a rain of darkness between Hurricanes and other things in my life lately. I managed to find a brilliant ray of light! I was quietly filtering through suggestions for folks to add to my “circles”, I decided to drop her name in the search box. One result and it seemed to be her, dropped her an email and she wrote me back! I was so happy to find her after numerous years.
We met many years ago in the early 90’s while working at a Little Caesars in northern Michigan. In a way, she was my Jenny. Although we never fell in love or things like that. We did get very close and did loads of things together. When she joined the Navy, I decided to give it a try myself. Just so I could still hang out with her. At the end of my Naval tour in 1998, I chose a career in computers and she was already established in the medical field. I briefly went back to Michigan while she stayed in Virginia with her newly formed family.
That was the point though that we lost touch. I tried to find her from time to time with no luck as I would find a thousand and one other people with similar names. That is, until yesterday 🙂 Now we can catch back up and while I’m sure it won’t ever be like it was, it’s still so nice to find my friend again 😀
