I LOVE SOCIAL NETWORKING!!! I just spent a few minutes perusing my Facebook friends and found some folks that I haven’t seen (although I’ve certainly thought about them) in 25+ years! I see them exactly as they were, I remember their voices, and I can’t begin to tell you how much the flood of memories is making me smile. I remember all the fun we had and the trouble we got in (or almost got in). With every new face I came across there was another flood of new pictures in my mind. So I want to say “Thank you!” to all those who were part of my journey then and now (via flashback)!
It reminds me of a posting I read recently about the red thread. I’ve included it at the end. Longwood was just a College then, not a University – hell, it was hardly co-ed. I went to Longwood, by default, because my mother and I couldn’t agree on my options. But my time there was, without a doubt, perhaps the greatest gift ever. The women of Longwood taught me about life, friendships, love, facing challenges, fun, PRIDE, and oh the list goes on… I believe that the red thread took me there and for that I am forever thankful. And to those who handled my thread at one time or another, thank you. And if you ever need me, just let me know. The thread holds fast.
“An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet,
regardless of time, place, or circumstance.
The thread may stretch or tangle,
but it will never break.”
