486.485.486.485.484. these are the numbers that i see constantly change in my friends column on facebook.
my mom asked me the other day. why do you have so many friends? do you really have that many friends?
i thought about that answer for a second. and said... everyone on my friends list touched my life one way or another. whether it be when i was a child. or when i was in highschool. or maybe it was college and we were on the track team and i cheered for them. and they cheered for me. or maybe we were in fca together. and we prayed and worshiped together. or maybe i have worked with them and we connect through our jobs.
are we suppose to be back in touch with people after many years? or just let all those people who entered our lives be memories and move on...
i learned today of someone who "defriended" me. someone who is such a sweet person. someone who i had a fun time with at one point in my life.
i personally enjoy seeing old connection's lives change and grow...i love seeing friends' updates and learning about engagements, weddings and babies being born...oh and babies growing up!
i love being back in touch because it means that at some point... you were a part of my life... a friend!
Have you ever been "defriended" by someone?
