It's only 9 a.m. and already it's been quite the day. I got up and checked my email and I couldn't believe it. An email from a lost friend to whom I had sent an email on Friday, hoping to at least close a door. A friendship that had never had closure for me and I'm sure for her. I needed to ask forgiveness from her for my part in a bad ending. I never thought I'd hear from her. It was enough knowing that I was doing what I'd wanted to do for 2 years.

But not only did she respond, she blessed me. Maybe time is sometimes what is needed to erase hurt and things never said. I don't know. I think it gave us the chance to grow up apart and maybe, just maybe we couldn't have reached our potentials together. That was a really hard thing for me to face 2 years ago, when I thought we'd never, ever not be friends. We'd be friends till we died. We always joked about being old together and sitting on our front porch acting as silly as we always were. Anyway, who knows where it will go. All I know is that only good things happen when you follow God's promptings. I'm finally free from something that has weighed me down for 2 years. Not only my body feels lighter from my cleanse, my heart is also getting a cleanse.
