It's amazing how much a person can change over the years. As we grow up meet our husbands and wives, have children and really become adults. Gosh 15 years ago I figured it would never happen. I was going to be in school forever wishing I was an adult forever. Or at least it seemed that way then.
My best friend from Middle School moved back to the area after many many years of being away. Thanks to myspace we had tracked each other down about 6 years or so ago and had been talking on the phone. We had been through pregnancy, new babies and such together over the phone.
Its amazing to me how different someone can be over the phone vs. in person. So she moves back to the greater Seattle area. I a bit worried how things might go and I couldn't have been more right to be worried.
Long story short.... She spent less than 7 months living here. There was no changing her, helping her or making her become the adult she needs to be to be able to raise her child.
Over the months she was here it gave me a new respect for the life long friends I do have and my amazing friends I have made as an adult. You all are the best and I love you so much. Thanks for making life wonderful and fun, filled with endless laughs, some tears and wonderful memories.
Until Next Time,
Just call me MOM
