Long Lost Friend

The strangest thing happened this week, Rick received an e-mail from a woman who had recently moved to the Jasper area from Texas.  She told him about reading his column and then she mentioned my name, saying that she had gone to school with a Jilda in Chicago whose family was from Alabama,
could that be me?   Well, it was me!  So a long lost friend that I truly never thought I would see again
has come back into my life.  There are some good things that come from Rick writing about me constantly!  Ha,ha!!!

We are going to get together soon for lunch.  I can't wait to see her,to hear about her life and the places she has been.  Wow, who would have thought we would end up living in the same county in Alabama after all these years.  Life can be so strange and wonderful.

Friendships.......they truly are magical.  Through the years, I have made some incredible friendships
only to have life change directions and take those friends with it.  I think about friends tonight, friends that I miss so much and would love to see......maybe, just maybe.....someday in the future,
some of them will show up again....I hope, I pray.


  1. One of the many blessings of the internet is finding good friends and reconnecting.

  2. Awwww that's really nice!! Yay for long lost friends! Enjoy your day together! Take care

  3. It's a small world after all..I'll spare you having to hear me sing that.
