We've been trying to find some old friends for years.
You know how it goes. They moved and changed jobs. We moved and changed jobs. Life goes on. We lost touch. In this case, my sister had a special friendship with their daughter and they became pen pals.
I asked my sister a few weeks ago if she had heard from the daughter. But both had moved and lost touch also.
Then last week, my husband was visiting in our old town.
He ran into our old friend. Yep. Our friend was in town visiting as well.
Both were out for a run, on the same trail, at the same time, in a city that neither lived in anymore.
Then today, my sister called. She found a letter from the daughter "just sitting on a shelf."
The letter is 10 years old.
Isn't that strange?
We've been looking for them for years and now we've found them.... on all channels.
It makes me wonder. Are those things/people/events always there and we just don't see them until everyone is ready? Or... does someone place them there when the time is right?
I guess that's why they call it serendipity.
I wonder if there's a way to make things like this happen. Or do we just have to be patient while we grow more?
What do you think?
