As I alluded to, earlier, FaceBook has put me in contact with people I haven't seen in 300 million years. Below I am pictured (third from left) with girlfriends I haven't seen since the seventh, or ninth grade [depending on each gal-pal's story].
At first -- because of the fact that we attended church-school together -- I wasn't sure I wanted to go back in time and reconnect. I was worried that some crappy old dogma would rear its ugly head or the too familiar judgmental attitudes taught by our childhood church would surface.
Instead? The reunion stuff has all been refreshing and fun. I'm so thankful to be reconnected -- with such worth-while people who have evolved far beyond the dysfunction; even went through struggles similar to mine.
