She and her husband had moved here from Florida and bought property. Bev was in real estate and I met them through her. We all became instant friends...you know the kind that just falls into place like it was meant to be...the kind of friendship that felt as comfortable as a favorite pair of jeans.
Rural life was new to them. We introduced them to poke salad and chocolate gravy and all our family members. They fit in like they had always been there.
Life changes, people move on, and we often wondered about our friends but had lost touch.
Today we reconnected...she found me through facebook...which I thought I had deleted long ago.
Her letter returned me to younger times, easier times, times when my family was whole, a time when I had parents and Den's mom was still with us. She returned me to a time when all things were possible and the whole world was my apple, a time when my life was full of laughter...Thank you, Dee, for finding me.
