I'm so Excited!

I’ve been googleing my long divorced family’s names for years with no luck. It wasn’t an amicable or ugly divorce, it just was. I never wished ill on my x-husband, in fact I hoped the best for him. But contact was lost. I managed to hear from my step-son’s girlfriend for a while so knew of the birth of a grandson. But they parted from each other, and, sadly from me. Then I hit the road and become very difficult to keep track of myself. That had to be at least 15 years ago.

Last night I decided to look for my x on facebook, and, there he was maybe. So I sent him a very short note. Surprise! This morning I got a reply. I was so excited I thought I’d just burst. We did a quick catch up via facebook. Then, tonight he called.

He’s following his dream and has a 44’ sailboat and in two years, his wife of two years and he plan to sail off into the sunset. He always wanted to cruise. Way back when I also wanted to travel, but I discovered, not by boat.

Now I have a phone number for my step-son but his phone is not accepting calls right now. Hell, it’s probably bedtime where he is. But I will get to talk to him also and then I’ll have something else to post about.

I’m still excited!

There is a God. Knowing how long & how much you've wanted this to happen makes this blowin away great. My buddy Bill just connected with his daughter after 35 years. My heart just sings with joy with both of you.
