A – April 1/14

Welcome to the first post of the  Blogging from A to Z (zed Jason…ZED)  April Challenge! The link to information about this challenge is located in my side bar on my main page: Go there after and visit some of the other bloggers blogs (umm sites?? weird).

A is for Amazing

It’s amazing how you can think you know someone deep down to their very core and then all of a sudden realize: you don’t know diddly about them…but in a good way. I mean to say you know everything about the person they are today: what makes them tick. What makes them happy, sad or angry. You know what kind of cheese to use when you make them a grill cheese sandwich (real cheddar: not Kraft slices…and no tomato soup…he’ll gag!) because they are YOUR person.  But you don’t know the person they were before they were YOUR person. Last night I met the person my person was before he was mine. I was amazed. We met and spent a very short but very meaningful time with his past family: his friends from forever ago. We watched them preform the most spectacular music show I think I will ever see in my life (no lie!) Watching him watch his friends; his family, up on that stage: Amazing. I cried. Like a lot. His smile and then the energy coming from them as they spoke and reminisced afterward over a few beers and acted as if no time had passed (even though it had been almost 2 years), was enough to cause me to tear up several times (again…also there was wine imbibed by yours truly. Just sayin).  It was amazing.  Seeing the similarities these friends/brothers share and the strength and spirt they gave to one another simply by being together: Ah-MAZ-ING!!! You want to be amazed?   Do that. Meet the good people from your persons past.  Let them become your people too. Be amazed.

  2. I never thought about it like that, but such a great point! My person moved around the world for me and rarely gets to see his family and friends from before, but I love the person I get to see when we get to visit someone from his past. And you’re right, that is a side to him I never knew before. I’m looking forward to the rest of your A-Z posts.

  3. I know how that feels. It really is an amazing feeling. It works the other way around as well. Because I move around a lot I have to leave friends behind, but when I see them again, and they are the ones worth keeping, it’s equally amazing, you see the new person they’ve become. They are different but the same as well.
