Sisters Reunited!!!!!!!!

(Just months after we meet)

I just can't believe I am writing this post...bear with me. It has been one super exciting day and most definitely one I will never forget for as long as I live.

Soo, you remember the post I did three days ago about my best friend "Two Peas in a Pod", if you don't remember please take the time to read it.

I was sitting here with the laundry going, sleepy, trying to coffee myself up and watching some stupid dinosaur movie. I was thinking the day was going to be just another ordinary day, do my chores, waste some time, wait for the old man to get home, cook supper and then go for my walk.

Mother called for a quick chat before she took a nap. I hung up with her and quickly dialed my SIL to see how she is feeling (baby due any day), my brother startled me by saying "stop dialing in my ear"! While talking to him, my ex MIL (mom) called quickly to tell me......

She found bff!

At first I was like...What did you say? I thought maybe it was one of those times where you hear what you want to hear. She repeated and I started shaking instantly. I wasn't sure (at the moment) what I was feeling. We have gone through this before, knowing what general area she might be living in. I was a little scared that was going to be the info I received. I was trying to hold my emotions in check, just in case. She relays the story of what happened.

They (her and her son T) were in Wal-Mart and T was looking at this girl, he turns to mom and asks..Is that A's daughter? They go up to her and ask her name, at first they thought they had the wrong girl cause she responded with her middle name. Well as you know it was the right girl and they were able to get info about where they are and how to get in touch.

Mom asks me..."Do you want her phone number?"

I was a total mess from then on, my world had just tilted. I know mom was talking, but seriously if you ask me what about..I could never tell ya! I not only got a phone number, I got an actual address too! The world was spinning wildly out of control.

I hung up with mom and then hung up with brother, who had been on hold.

This was all in the spam of maybe 15 minutes! Life as I have grown to know, suddenly went loopy and I was thrown into a blast from the past. My mind was reeling, the emotions overwhelming and my body...well lets just say, it was mesh of melting, bouncing, shaking and lord have mercy sweating! I paced the floor with the phone in my hands, trying to get a grip and find my composure. Ha, never found it!

(About a year before we lost touch)

I dialed...Mom (her mom) answered the phone. (I just realized I have a lot of mom's) What little resolve I had gained in a few minutes, melted away to tears. It was
the mix of relief, surprise, excitement and love, was just too much for me to behave any other way than a cry baby who has missed a piece of her family for soo long. I could tell it was emotional for her too and was quickly given to A.

*Excuse me while I cry a little*

It was the moment I had waited for, for a very long time. The ease, love, friendship and sisterhood was all still there. We did all the catching up we could do, in between the OMG's I can't believe this is happening's!

Hubby came home and I was panicked to think I was going to have to get off the phone. Hubby tends to come home hungry, so you know...supper is usually my next step. It was one of those moments that you don't want to end. I have her on the phone, if I hang up...will I ever be able to contact her again or will this be my one shot? I just don't know how to express the emotions I was feeling at the thought of breaking the connection. But, at least I can say "I TALKED TO HER" and all is right with the world! I don't ever plan to let that girl out of reach again, if I can help it! I am still floating on an emotional high!

To answer Angelia's question... Makes me wonder after all these years passing, if you got in touch, would the friendship rekindle? The answer is YES YES YES!!!!

Isn't it funny that it took my mom to get us together the first time and then my other mom to reunite us. Thank Goodness for MOMS!

I find it to be so ironic for me to have written that post only three days ago and now this! Fate? Maybe!

I've had things like that happen and it is wonderful. I am SO happy for you! Serendipity or kismet or fate or whatever you want to call it... is smiling right now. I'll be waiting for pics of when you finally get together. Are you two far apart?

You know I believe in SIGNS. That blog post was a beacon! So happy for you! I have a childhood friend that I've known since 13. We led separate lives in the same city for a number of years, but always, always when we gather again. It is just like old times. She is going to be my maid of honor in my wedding just like we always dreamed.
Thank goodness for moms and FRIENDS!
