Childhood Friendships & Facebook

When I opened up Facebook this morning I looked at the birthdays and smiled.   I wrote my happy birthday on her wall and immediately had to find this old photo and post it here. 
{June 1981}

A little back-story...
When I was younger I lived in a town outside of Rochester called Chili Center. 
We lived in an apartment complex. 
The buildings we lived in were green.
We moved when I was in 3rd grade. 

When you move you really didn't keep in touch unless your parents kept in touch.  There was no facebook to follow their journey and their kids grow up.  So friends you made fade away and you make new ones. 

Fast forward to over a year ago on Facebook, I got a friend request and a message from a girl who said, "You probably do not remember me. We were friends when we were little. I have lots of old pictures with you and I and your sister Heidi. I think we lived in the same green apartments in Chili."

Facebook is wonderful for that!!  Reconnecting with long lost friends. 

The little girl with me in the photo above is her.  Happy Birthday Lisa!  Hope you have a wonderful day!!

That is wonderful!
I'm one of those people that always goes around saying how anti-social and isolating facebook is, but I can't deny that it's great for reconnecting with old friends or keeping in touch with people from all over the world.

Nice post! And a very cute picture too:)
