Funny how life can play out. How relationships come and go, especially romantic ones. One ends, a new one begins. A lot of the times, ex's stay in the past. And then, sometimes they come back into one's life, and both realize that spark never died.

Such as is the case with someone near and dear to me. One of my sisters. About 20 years ago, she had been introduced to a guy by the boyfriend of our other sister. Not going to go into major detail here. So, basically, they lived together down in Texas for a while. She got pregnant, lost her baby. And about that time, he had gotten into some legal troubles. She came home, he came up a while later after getting the ok from Texas with the requirement he phones in once a week to check in. He had to make occasional trips back down to Texas for pre trial hearings and such...his lawyer would contact him to let him know. One of the times he was down there, my sister discovered she was pregnant again. And about this time, a so called "friend" with a bunch of lies about cheating etc...managed to cause them to break off their relationship a few months after their daughter, my niece, was born. He went back down to Texas, had his trial, of which the judge had him serve 6 months behind bars, and the remainder of the 10 years on probation. And, at that time, he felt that my sister wanted nothing to do with him...and for the next 17 years...we heard nothing from him.

About a year and a half ago, my niece, through a mutual friend of her mother and her father, was able to get her father's email address, and she wrote to him. To say this girl was happy to have contact with her father after all of these years is an understatement. She was only a few months old when her father went back down to Texas, but my family and I remember how he was with her. He loved her to death..was very good with her. And that was what we told her in regards to her dad when she would ask. He came back up to Michigan last year, and "met" his daughter, and OMG...the change in her since then has been awesome. And, my nephew, who doesn't trust easily, has grown to like this guy. And that says a lot when one knows what these kids have gone through. Anyway, I found out, via Facebook, that my sister and my niece's father are engaged!

They have talked about what happened all those years ago, and have found out just how badly manipulated by that so called "friend" they had been. All those years lost...but you know, they are happy, and most important, to me, is that my niece and nephew are thrilled. I'm so happy for all of them. Now I truly understand the meaning of "life coming to a full circle". And yes, if anyone is curious, I have welcomed my future brother in law into the family. Seems stupid to hold a grudge on the actions of mistakes made years ago when all of us were "young and stupid".

I think I have the same, so called "friend", or this part of the world has plenty of 'em.

Mostly, good for your niece. Every young woman needs to know that her daddy
loves her, no matter the distance or the "friend"s.

'course, my convertibles top is down today (83F), how's the weather in Michigan?
