What 10 things would you say to a friend you haven't seen in a long time?

What 10 things would you say to a friend you haven't seen in many years?
Every now and then my mind wonders back to my teenage year's best friend Tonya Ashley.  (If you know her please tell her Mary misses her!) 
1. I have missed you very much and think about you often.
2. I have a good life and for the most part am happy, are you?
3. I have tried to find you again and it hurt so much to go back to Vegas that last time knowing you were probably there somewhere and I couldn't see you.
4. I have worried about you and prayed for you, especially after our last conversation those years ago.
5. Are you safe now, have you settled down yet?
6. Have you learned to forgive those who have hurt you or do you still carry so much hate in you?
7. What happen to you in the past was not your fault and the things that were are all behind you.
8. You have a beautiful soul and are so loved, even when you try to push others away.
9. You are invited back into my life and I hope we can be even better friends then we were in our youth.
10.  Get your butt to STL and see me!!!


  1. Thanks for visiting my journal.  Your journal is great!  I'll be adding you to my alerts.  Have a good weekend.

  2. I wnader back to alot of my OLD friends I miss them so muchtoo

  3. I did a sentimental old friend entry on another journal of mine (off aol).l

  4. I have a few friends I would like to see or hear from again.  Wish I could find them.  I've googled and nothing.

  5. Guess we all have a person or two we lost contact with and wonder about.  God Bless.  -  Barbara

  6. That really touched my heart.  I have several of those friends out there in the world.  I wonder about them a lot and always pray they are doing as well or better than I am.  You're very sweet.       Kathy

  7. Hi and nice to meet you Mary !! Thank you for your comment on my journal and congratulations for being Guest Editor last week :-) I have an old friend who emigrated to Dubai ~ I still miss her and tried to keep the contact up but she's changed a lot, it's sad because I often wonder how she is. Thanks to J'land though I've made lots of new friends ~ you included :-) Happy Sunday!!
    hugs Debbie ~xxxx~

  8. This really made me think. I have lost touch with some old friends too. I suppose that is the nature of life. We all change as we get older. I do hope that you find your old friend,

  9. I'll know on Thursday what I'll say.   I have a friend whom I've not seen for 10 years coming to see me...and I am SURE it will be much more than 10 things!  lol

  10. Awww, what a beautiful, sweet entry. I hope that somehow, some way, she reads this and you are both reunited. :-)
