When I went to church (I've been going, and I am trying to find my way again) yesterday, I got the surprise of my life!!!! My old teacher and friend came in from Oklahoma for a short visit. He was a part of my life for a long time and I really enjoyed the friendship that we had. He's been gone for about 8 to 9 years and it was really great to see him!! He didn't know anything about my life since he left and we're both very bad pen pals. When he was here his girls Danielle, Kylee, and Jaime were still in grade school, and now both Danielle and Kylee have graduated High School. Danielle has received a two year degree and plans on working this year and then returning to school next year. Kylee is going into pre-med at North Eastern in Teliquah (sp??), OK and then she plans on transferring to the University of Tenn. Jaime will be a freshman this year and she has gotten TALL!!! Scott and his wife Janice have not changed one bit. He still looks the same and I still feel as close to him as ever. He has invited me to visit him in Oklahoma, so now I have another reason to travel to Oklahoma. I love it out there, but don't like to drive out there!!!!
Scott was like a brother to me and he knew both me and my EX. So he was very surprised to hear that we had divorced and no longer talk. He was also very sad to hear that I had lost you. So I had to go through my story and tell him about you. And of course he agrees that you did look just like your "dad". I think you would have really liked him. He's a nice guy and a true friend. It was really nice to reconnect with him for the first time in a long time. It was just like he had never left. He keeps saying that he wants to move back, but I don't know when. I wish they never left.
So seeing Scott and his family was the highlight of my weekend. He's leaving tomorrow, but this time I have all of their email addresses and I do plan on keeping in touch. I didn't take any pictures so I can't post any, but it seems like I always do that.
Cylas, I love ya!!!!!
(**Note: Well Scott and his family left to go back to Oklahoma today!! We spent about an hour and half with them last night. We talked and watched your sissy play with his nephew Jon. I hate that they had to go back, but I hope to make it out there in December. It's definitely in the early stages of planning, but I think it would be a good trip. I don't know how it will work out with a 5 year old and a 1 year old, but it will also be good to get away from Cherokee for a little while. So now I have to save up my leave and not be lazy so much. Cylas, will you and God keep Scott and his family safe as they travel back home.)
You are my Sunshine
