I have to say one more time that I love Facebook. When you have moved as much as I did, you just don't keep track of people.
I have mentioned that I found my best friends from high school because of facebook.
A good friend found me. We met when we were 10 and then were really good at writing each other until our 20's. We reconnected about 5 years ago but then lost touch again. So it was great to hear from her.
I have now found my best friend from junior high (I moved away in the 10th grade).
I also found someone I have been wanting to apologize to for at least 15 years.
I try to be nice usually. If I am not nice, most of the time its an accident. But to this girl, I was pretty mean. I didn't beat her up or anything like that, but I really wasn't nice to her.
She and I were friends with someone else and I was insecure and jealous. So I was mean.
So when I found her on facebook, I really thought about whether or not to write. If she had forgotten me, then I would be bringing up old wounds. But I also thought of one person I really wanted to be friends with and she apparently couldn't stand me, I would be interested in knowing what it was.
So I wrote a message. (You can send messages to people that aren't your "friends" and I didn't know if she would want to be friends -- gosh that sounds juvenile).
And she wrote me back a most gracious message forgiving me.
Hopefully you have no idea what a burden that lifted.
So yet another reason I love facebook.
