Have you ever had the experience of meeting someone and, after a brief period of time, it’s as if you’ve always known them?
Or perhaps you have a good friend you haven’t seen in years (or decades) and as soon as you’re together, it’s like no time has passed?
Don’t you love when that happens?
I have a soul sister like that and I’ll call her Natalie.
Last year I stayed in a town just a few hours from where she lives. I hadn’t talked to her in awhile but we’d stayed in touch on Facebook. I messaged her letting her know I was nearby.
Natalie immediately called and said she was on her way to this very same town as her daughter was participating in a state event!
Meant to be?
I was a little nervous to see her again. Even though we’d reconnected via social media and the phone in the last few years, I hadn’t seen her or physically been with her in almost 20 years.
The last time we were together, we’d had a falling out.
Maybe it was disappointment at some of my life choices or that I’d backed out of a plan we’d made together. Either way, I felt stifled and judged and in need of some space and time. I’d relocated, moving a thousand miles away, so it became easy to stop communicating with her.
