Have You Ever Been Sorry To Hear From A Friend You Were Glad To Hear From?
An old friend of mine reconnected with me yesterday, and it was great and awful to hear from her all at the same time. We'd friended each other on Facebook after she moved away, but she doesn't post much. It was an out-of-the-blue surprise when she messaged me yesterday, and I was smiling as I clicked into her note.
It didn't take long for the smile to fade. She and her husband were one of my favorite couples ever. They had such fun with each other, such fun being parents - they were, as my granny would say, "Good People". Except it turns out he's not as good as he used to be, or maybe he never really was. He left her for another woman and now he's threatening a custody battle for their children - the ones she's raised as a stay-at-home-mom while he traveled all the time for work and played around on her in his off-time.
She's doing amazingly well, which doesn't surprise me. She's a terrific mom and a very strong person. Still, it took me by surprise and for a moment, I felt that fist squeezing my gut as I thought about the pain she's been through. It was like I was standing in the house next to her the night she found out about his girlfriend. I wanted to crawl through my computer and hug her and hug her and hug her. And kick him. You probably know where.
