Today has been a good day. I can honestly say I don’t have many of those. It seems like they only come now and again any more. Nothing overly exciting happened but nothing sad happened either. To me, that’s what makes it a good day.
I believe I told everyone earlier that I joined Facebook at the end of November. Considering everything that has happened in my life, especially in the last year, it is good to find the little things that can bring a smile to your face (even if others don’t like it or think of it’s okay).
Today Keith and I were able to get reconnected with an old friend from when we were both stationed at Ft. Hood, TX. His name is Michael (Mike) Brooks. There used to be a group of us that would hang out every weekend, and almost every day. We used to go to the country bar, Cody’s, almost every single Friday and Saturday night. Mike stood up for Keith at our ceremony when we got married. There were a total of six of us, to include the justice of the peace. It was Mike, his wife Courtney (at the time), my friend Tina Davis (she was my witness) and the JP.
That time in our lives was such a special time. We still had our whole lives in front of us. Keith and I were just starting out. That was over fifteen years ago. We haven’t heard from Mike in about thirteen or fourteen years. It was good to reconnect to those who held a special place in your past. I’m also looking forward to reconnecting with the others from back then as well. Mike says he still talks to the old crew.
It’s the little things sometimes that can bring us those much-needed smiles.
