It Always Comes In Three’s

August 10, 2020

As we know, stuff always happens in Three’s. Commonly it’s nothing good like three deaths, three breakups, etc.. But they don’t always have to be bad.. So, these three are good events.. Connecting with people from my past.

The first is Billy.. Billy is a former boyfriend of mine from back in the late 90’s. He was initially from Scotland & moved to Canada with his family at age 6. After we broke up & some other events happened in his life, he decided to return to Scotland with his Mother & sister’s. Fast forward 20 years.. His Dad is very sick and he has connected with his highschool sweetheart & planned to move back. So contacted me last year letting me know he was planning on moving back.. So, we rekindled a friendship, but nothing more. He finally gets back here & doesn’t tell me he’s back in Canada, the brat, until he’d been here over a month.. and then COVID hit. Which is why I haven’t seen him at all..So, as a friend & friend only, he is now back in my life..

The second was David. I’ve know him since grade 9 and we were close friends for a long time. Then conflict arose, some my fault, some his. & We haven’t talked since. A few months back a friend of mine shared a DM/Star Wars video.. It was funny. So, I suggested to this mutual friend that he might appreciate the video. He was on my mind for a while after that & I choose to unblock him. Fast forward to the summer. I’m working with another Cub Scout group with a summer virtual program. One of the Scouters recently had emergency surgery, so I left her 2 inspiration Rocks to helpr hfeel better – one saying Be Safe & the other Be Well. She posted them on Facebook, saying she got them from Scouter Koolaid (that’s me).. He picked up on that comment & said “there’s only one person I know of with that name.” & They started talking how it was too bad that we had severed our friendship saying he was hoping to connect again with me some time. At this point he did not know I had unblocked him ,& could see his comments. I actually missed the first few comments initially, cuz I don’t check my Facebook enough for the number of notifications I get. He said to the other Cub Scouter that he wished he could extend an olive branch, which is where I finally saw the post & shocked the shit out of him by tagging him & saying “I actually unblocked you some time ago.” Shortly after he sent me s Facebook message ,& we’ve been talking. While I know our friendship will never be the same he’s come back into my life. This is a good thing.

This third on surprised me. My highschool sweetheart, Gord, had blocked me cuz his baby mama & then his wife didn’t like him connecting with other women.. We had started dating almost exactly 30 years ago (30 years & a week) for close to 2¬Ĺ years but have not spoken to him in almost 20 years. So you can understand my surprise when I saw his Facebook message. There had been some animosity when we last spoke both my fault & his… I manned up & apologized for cheating on him then lying about it for years. That surprised him. As a result, we have been talking a bunch over the last a few days and we just might be able to maintain a friendship. We will see..

So, Yes things come in Three’s, but they don’t always have to be bad.
