Oddly enough, someone I wasn’t sure I’d ever talk to again just came back in my life a few months ago.  Since I don’t have anyone else in my life that I feel has simply drifted away, today I’ll tell you all about Christine.
I met Christine my sophomore year of high school in French class.  We both shared the fact that we’re short, loud, and have French last names (scratch that, I now have a German last name but back in the day my last name was French).  Christine is one of those girls you can’t help but like and we got along swimmingly.
We were friends throughout high school and my freshman year of college she was one of the first people to come visit me.  We stayed in touch as best we could but towards my 3rd year of traditional college we simply lost touch.  It had nothing to do with the fact that we stopped liking each other, there was no big dramatic blow up like I’ve had in recent years with friends.  We simply got busy doing other things.
And then Christine joined Facebook.  This was actually awhile ago but the girl was never actually on.  I’d heard she’d had a son but otherwise I really knew nothing about her life.
A couple of weeks ago Christine called me and we spent a few hours on the phone catching up.  And although we’d missed a lot of things in each other’s lives (my marriage, the birth of her son) it still felt like nothing had really changed.
I’m glad that in this instance my friend that drifted came back into my life and I can’t wait to catch up some more over coffee.

    I love getting back together with old friends. I was suppose to meet up with a group of girls from my time in business school next weekend, but I wont be able to make due to my vacation, though I would love to meet up with them again. I think the last time I saw all of them was 7 or 8 years ago! But they promised we would meet up again in the spring, so hopefully I will be able to join in on the fun at that time:)

    I love when this happens – I'm a firm believer that everyone has a right time or chapter for being in your life, and sometimes the timing's not quite right – you might not be on the same page – but once in a while, you both get back to the same place, and people can come drifting back in :)

    That's so good, i had my best friend in high school too, we did everything together for 5 years, then we left and went to college..we drifted apart really when she had kids and i didn't, we were just different people with different things going on, i didn't like the person she became when she divorced her first hubbie and stopped work to live off the state, so basically i stopped making the effort (terrible i know but i used to get high blood presure when i went round and saw all the things my tax bill was paying for….) but recently with face books help we reconnected, and i find catching up with her an enjoyable experience again we have more in common now we are both older and wiser. We love face book! :)

    Catching up with friends is always refreshing. I've been in the same situation before and it was awkward to rekindle some of my friendships at first but now that I have, they have become some of my best friends.

    I had this happen to me recently, My best friend from elementary school was a girl named Catherine and we were inseparable but then my parents got divorced and we moved and even though we tried to stay in touch, it just didnt happen. And then like maybe 9 months ago her husband finds me on facebook and gives me her email to catch up and now we chat at least once a month. :)

    That's great that she called you. It makes you feel good when someone's thinking of you and want to stay in touch. I've found myself in the same situation about a month ago- it's great but sometimes awkward at first.

  7. says

    I have friends like that…where you go months/years without talking, and then you randomly find yourself in touch with them and it's like no time has passed. :)

    I hope you enjoy your time catching up with one another! :)
