I went home last night, a quick 2 hour drive to the place I loved as a child…. Three Rivers Michigan. It was for the committee meeting for our 40 yr high school reunion. I’ve finally decided to participate after all these years. I just feel happy in this time of life, and I am more open to people now. It was great to see the people I knew so long ago. My son rode up with me and the time shared with him was fun and a treasure also. After the first 10 years of leaving the sweet little town and visiting, the reasons for going there started to die. First my mom, then the welcome from my step father, then people that were close to me …. until I had no real reason to go there. I was contacted for a reunion about ten years ago, but I was not in a good state of mind or position at the time. So I believe that now, its good for me to be “back” of sorts. I feel good about it, and I will enjoy it. It isn’t the first time in the past 10 years that I’ve connected with some of the people from there. I’ve had some more private reunions by contacting and visiting others from our “time”. But this will be on a larger scale, and I’m ready.
