I’ve recently gotten back in touch with some people I knew when I lived in Michigan. That was… a lifetime ago (OK, 8 years this December). I don’t think I can adequately express how happy I am to be back in touch with these people. My time in Michigan, while short (17 months), was rough, and these are the people who were right there in it with me (actually, more so, as I was really rather peripheral to the whole deal). We lost touch after we all moved away (yes, multiple people moved away from the… situation), and that was understandable (who wants to be reminded of all that? sometimes it’s just easier to leave it in the past). But, I really do cherish these people, and getting in touch with them, being able to look at their pictures and find out what’s going on in their lives (it is Facebook, afterall), well, it’s no substitute for the hug I want to give them, but it will definitely do. I am so happy to learn that their lives have been so blessed in the last eight years (lots of babies, some marriages, people going through high school and graduating from college – yes, some former youth group kids).
I wanted to share some photos with you, but that was back loooong before the days of digital cameras, so I don’t have much in Flickr, but I do have a few (my apologies for the crappiness – they’re scans). Enjoy!
