Thanks to Face Book I have connected with a few old friends from school and days gone by. Friends that I haven't seen or talked to since graduation. Today I reconnected with my best friend from grade 2...yes you read correctly Grade 2. Patty and her family rented my dad's house from us....it was grade 4 when they moved to Crutwell. Not far away but far enough that we didn't see each other until her son was born and I was invited to her baby shower and then we didn't see each other until her wedding and she called to ask me to be her bridesmaid at her wedding and again we didn't see each other until Al and I were getting married and I asked patty to be my bridesmaid. Regardless of how many years have passed where we haven't had contact with each other I have always held Patty as a very dear friend. The last time I seen Patty was at the gift opening at my wedding back in 1988. Today I have a private message on Face Book and it is from Patty. Wow what an awesome way to start 2011 but connecting with an old friend. Definitely want to reconnect with Patty and her hubby one of these days soon.
