the one titled Julie's Life,and I would like you to go as far back as you can.Back to the days where I was cute,tiny and had long black curls and no gray hair. When my family was functional,when death was for old people,so I thought.When everyone made a point to visit their loved ones and be a part of special occasions.When people were thoughtful and considerate.When people didn't make a hobby out of tearing others apart,but a job of building each other up.
Oh the tape has been erased and there are no back-ups:( Don't mind me,I'm just thinking back.
Do you ever look back at your childhood and smile?Think of things that you did, that your own kids today do not have the privilege of doing,or just don't want to do because it's not as fun as the playstation or PC. Those were the good old days.
I got thinking today about some of the choices I have made in my life,mostly regarding people I have allowed to come into my life,loved and for the most part got nothing in return.Yep,friends......would you pick the same ones if you had to do it over again? Some I would keep,and others I wouldn't. Some of would make sure that I found sooner and others I would hold on to a little tighter.Of all the girls who stood up with me in my wedding,I only have contact really with one,and she is my SIL.I wouldn't necessarily pick the ones that live the closest.Good grief, most of my friends today, I have never met other than on-line,but I talk to them every day and they make me smile. I know they are there if I need them,and well........I'm there even if they don't need me:) I wouldn't necessarily chose the ones that I have the most in common with as I found out later in life that opposites attract. Take Jolene and I,she is a little rock-n-roll and I'm a little country:) but we are one when it comes to the stuff that matters.We talk each and every day,sometimes more than once. We talk about absolutely nothing for the most part.I'm sure that I say things that bug her and vice versa,but we don't remember it the next day.We don't come out and say "I love you" to each other because we don't have to, it is just understood.........plain and simple!!!!!!!
Anyway boring perhaps,but I was feeling a bit reflective today.I cherish my friends both near and afar.The ones I see often and the ones I've never met:)
I'll leave you with a bit of Evan humor........Did you know there was a new version of the Bible,yep I like to call it the New Evan Version Acts 16:31 Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and though shalt be shaved.........LOL I didn't bother correcting him because I thought it was cute. No whether his Awana leader will think so, is a different story.
